China’s economic slowdown raises a multitude of questions: How will the economic slowdown affect the
stability of the CCP regime? Will it ultimately affect the power of co-optation and suppression? China’s financial system at the same time is burdened with inefficiency, non-transparency and statecontrol. How are private entrepreneurs and economic innovation affected, especially through financialization in the Chinese Economy? How will entrepreneurs in China react to a continued slowdown – what pathway do they take, to remain profitable? Will the split between private and state-owned firms widen or close? What is China’s economic outlook? Join us to learn about and discuss answers to these questions with our expert panel.
