About the event

Beijing’s recent policy moves have fueled concerns about the prospects for foreign companies doing business in China. While China’s regulatory environment has tightened significantly, its growth momentum has also been hit by the Delta variant, a slowdown in construction and weak consumer confidence.

To grasp how China’s big picture is changing, we must understand the underlying priorities which are driving policy decision making. Our dialogue explores the role a strong domestic market plays (dual circulation, common prosperity) and speculates on what economic policies could be in the pipeline for next year. Further discussion topics include China's race to net zero, data and cyber security, as well as business travel prospects and the Beijing Winter Olympics 2022.
