The Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce has the pleasure to invite you to a webinar, 'How to understand and navigate China's changing business environment for foreign investors?'. This webinar will take place on February 22, 2022, from 09h00 am to 10h00 am CET.
The current operating environment in China is being shaped forcefully on the one hand by changes from the pandemic as well as intensifying domestic economic imbalances, and on the other government initiatives to rectify what China’s leadership has identified as serious ideological deficiencies in the commercial and social spheres associated with “disorderly capital expansion” and societal disarray.
The risks currently being targeted by China’s leaders have recently focused on the massive wealth accumulation by Chinese entrepreneurs, the capture of market data by private firms, and the oligopolistic business practices in the marketized parts of China’s economy. To address these risks, the increase of Party/state control appears to be happening everywhere.
Debate is rife about whether these current developments are primarily political and control oriented, or visionary and “managed reform” oriented and aimed at resolving longstanding social and economic problems to create a better and more egalitarian future for China. This question is of huge consequence for foreign investors in China.
