What are the outcomes of the 2020 Two Sessions/Lianghui?
What is China's domestic and international outlook in the new decade and in the post COVID-19 world?
What should foreign businesses be on the lookout for?
Last year's China Now highlighted that despite gloomy domestic economic forecasts and uncertainty arising from global trade tensions, foreign businesses would continue to benefit from China's economic opening and the growing wave of Chinese firms going global. How would this change in 2020?
China's GDP contracted by 6.8% year-on-year in the first quarter of 2020. This is the first time in more than 40 years that the Chinese economy has shrunk, owing to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the severe economic disruption caused by subsequent lockdown measures imposed across the country to contain the virus. How would this affect economic development domestically and globally?
The British Chamber of Commerce in China is delighted to invite you to join a panel of renowned experts to address all these issues, recognise the domestic and international outlook for China and breakdown 2020 Lianghui.
