Managing China in Transition
15 March, 2013 | (01 hr)
Regardless of how China lands – hard, soft or in-between – the next 24 months will be transitional, for better or for worse. Contingency planning will be the key to sustaining growth, and to finding new growth opportunities, new investments, and new alliances. It will also be the key to mitigating risks across a number of evolving scenarios. Whether by design or unavoidable circumstances, slowing growth coupled with confluence of political and social factors is creating acute pressure for policy adjustment and structural change. How will this dynamic shape the operating environment for multinational corporations.
David Hoffman, Vice President and Managing Director of The Conference Board’s Beijing-based China Center for Economics and Business, will be discussing this and other salient China topics during this 60 minute webcast.
