About the Event
Has China's sustained meteoric rise come to an unexpectedly quick end? Has the promise of economic reform, an urbanizing middle class, domestic demand, and government policy that encourages globalization and innovation been extinguished? Has optimism been thwarted by the resurgence of policy conservatism, protection of state owned enterprises, currency controls,economic nationalism, control of the internet and the return of an investment-driven growth model that is fuelling debt? Or is this the next chapter of naysayers and pessimists underestimating China’s ability to adapt and to transform? Will economic reforms be intensified after the 19thParty Congress, under a strengthened and more confident President and capitalizing on the strength of the growing services sector, domestic consumption, “One Belt One Road” and productivity inducing innovation?

To help us navigate these complex and often contradictory forces, join CanCham On May 29th for a panel discussion featuring two widely recognized China practitioners and thinkers.
