This course will be conducted in English.
Over the past four decades, the Chinese government has played a vital role in the process of social and economic development, guiding China's transition from a planned economy to a market economy. During this period, multinational companies have gradually entered China and are enjoying the benefits of opening-up and reform. At the same time, they also noted the importance of communicating and cooperating with various stakeholders from a panorama of perspectives to deal with various challenges.
Looking at the world at large, we're facing a period of major change that's rarely seen in a century. In the year of 2020 alone, Britain exited from the EU, China-U.S. relations deteriorate significantly, and the global economy is on the risk of sinking into recession because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
IMF statistics show that China, where businesses started reopening in April, 2020, and new infections have been minimal, is the only major economy now expected to show positive growth in 2020 as its GDP is predicted to expand 1.9 percent, and forecasts from IMF estimate an 8.2% growth forecast for China in 2021. We witness China is moving toward a high-quality development model with its unique national governance characteristics, while revealing the new blue print of the 14th Five-Year Plan and the long-range objectives through the year 2035.
Now is a good time to really look into, study, and learn about the Chinese government and the relevant regulatory environment for multi-national companies:
- How the government governs the country?
- What role does the government play in guiding the country to keep positive growth?
- Where the Chinese economy is moving toward?
- How should multinational companies leverage the opportunities of China's macro administration characteristics to keep business growth and deal with challenges?
