This event examines the structural challenges facing the Chinese economy after the 20th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party in October 2022 and how President Xi Jinping is responding to short and long-term domestic pressures.
The panel, including Professor Huang Yiping, discuss how quickly the Chinese economy could rebound after the Chinese government abandoned its ‘Zero COVID-19’ policy in December 2022 and to what extent the Chinese economy is pivoting toward Xi Jinping’s stated goal of ‘self-reliance’. The panel also discuss the broader implications for the global economy.
Key questions to be explored:
Which sectors will China prioritize in pursuit of greater economic self-reliance?
If China is turning inward, how will it drive technological innovation in the coming years?
Is China’s economy robust enough to withstand geopolitical turbulence and other external shocks?
This event is held under the Chatham House Rule.
