The world economy is in recession and changing, but the way forward remains murky; China’s sliding economy is undergoing an adjustment, but the way to update it is unclear. When economic stimulus initiatives around the world are unable to generate recovery, when proactive, deep-seated reform becomes the only hope for a return to growth, and when generating greater efficiency becomes the consensus in the international community, how will global economic patterns evolve? Can China’s economy go with the trend and return to its former glory?
Seeking ways to stabilise the economic situation while also implementing the reforms required for structural adjustment are common challenges currently facing the world’s economies, and these issues provide the keynotes for China’s economic policies following the CPC’s 18th congress. In its goal-line stand for reform and innovation, China’s troubles at home and abroad are only part of the story. As the world’s second-largest economy, its well-developed infrastructure, complete industrial chain, large-scale, mature manufacturing talent base and many years of proactive experience with reform and liberalisation already furnish it with the foundations for the next step of deepening reform. But time waits for no man, and China urgently needs not only new ideas, but also ways to put these into action.
So what is the way forward for the Chinese economy? How large a space will a new round of reform require, and what path will it take? What policy choices will China make as it faces up to its challenges, both in the short and longer terms? How will the country’s policy orientation affect the national economy and people’s welfare? The 2012 Caixin Summit focuses on the new political and economic patterns in China and around the world, provides an interpretation of the demands and expectations these patterns place upon the new round of deepening reform, and explores the growth space and opportunities established on these foundations.
Caixin Summit is Caixin Media’s signature conference series, regarded as the premier annual event in Chinese economic and financial circles. The conference gathers distinguished speakers to analyze the most pressing topics and to provide expert viewpoints to our audience.
