Critical Issues Confronting China featuring Yao Yang – China’s New Era: Reversing the Dire Consequences of 40 Years of Reform

October 5, 2023 @ 4:00 pm 5:30 pm

Speaker: Yao Yang, Dean, National School of Development at Peking University

Forty years of reform and opening up have resulted in rapid growth and rising living standards for many Chinese, but also left a series of dire consequences.  Professor YAO Yang, Dean of the National School of Development at Peking University, explains how the economic agenda of President Xi Jinping is intended to address and reverse some of these consequences.  While these measures may suppress the economy and trigger a near-term slowdown, the hope is that if such measures succeed, the Chinese economy will emerge healthier, more equitable, and more innovative.
