In the past four decades China experienced spectacular economic growth along with its economic reforms, transforming a socialist planning economy into a market-oriented economy. In contrast to Eastern Europe’s big
bang market reform strategy in the 1990s, China is famous for its gradualist reform philosophy. However, along with this gradualist reform, potential risks and challenges accumulated over time, which have endangered the future
development of China.
What are these risks and how will China address them?
What does this mean for an Australian economy that sends a third of its exports to China?
Join us for a fascinating discussion on these questions and more at the first Confucius Institute China Briefing of 2017.
