Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,
SwissCham is delighted to invite you to the upcoming Stars webinar part of the webinar series: China's Economy and Ongoing Reforms in Uncertain Times. The webinar will be held online on Friday, August 26th. For this occasion, Stars has invited Prof. Huang to share his observations on the topic: "China's Economy and Ongoing Reforms in Uncertain Times". This webinar has be supported and co-branded in cooperation with French Chamber (CCI France Chine), European Union Chamber of Commerce in China (EUCCC), British Chamber of Commerce and Italian Chamber of Commerce as well with Caixin Global as media partner and the China Macro Group as knowledge partner.
In the fifth conversation of this series, stars Switzerland Alumni Chapter President and stars Foundation Board Member Markus HERRMANN, Managing Director at China Macro Group (CMG), will be talking to Professor HUANG Yiping, Deputy Dean and Sinar Mas Chair Professor of Finance and Economics, National School of Development, Peking University, Beijing. After four decades of breakneck economic growth and after officially achieving the first centennial goal of building a "moderately prosperous society", the 14th Five-Year-Plan – endorsed in March 2021 – marks a pivot of China's economic policy from prioritizing fast and quantitative growth towards pursuing "high-quality development" – with many variables that need to be optimized in parallel, ranging from social, health, youth and demographic policy objectives to environmental protection or "orderly capital deployment". So: How to grow the economy while increasing equality and without stifling entrepreneurship? How to unlock value from China's digital economy while stepping up governance of data and the internet economy? Or more fundamentally, how to effectively balance the role of the government ("visible hand") and the role of market ("invisible hand") to achieve "high-quality development", as Xi Jinping already mused in his speech at a Politburo study session in May 2014?
Join us to find out more.
Kindly note: This webinar held under Chatham House Rules and will not be recorded. We are looking forward to welcoming you to this interesting seminar.

With best regards,
