EICN Shanghai Cocktail: Telling the “New China” Story

China’s industrial structure, comparative advantage and business environment have changed substantially. MNCs operating in the market are facing new challenges every day. Most of MNCs remain committed to the market but their China strategies will need to be modified. How to tell the “new China” story for the next 10 or 20 years has been the center of discussion. What’s China’s growth prospect? What sectors/industries are likely to benefit more from the country’s new development priorities? What role will MNCs play in China’s economy in the future? Join us for a lively conversation on these topics with leading scholars and business leaders to better navigate the opportunities as well as challenges in the vast but different Chinese market.
