China at a Turning Point?
The concept of ‘New Era’ has prevailed in Chinese society since the emphasis placed on by President Xi Jinping. This expression indicates the promise of state leaders to propel the country into a new stage. Informed by this fashionable term, we propose ‘a Turning Point?’ as the theme of this year, as we believe this theme can objectively cover the scope of opportunities and challenges that China faces.
China Development Forum aims to depict a unique portrait of contemporary China - its economy and business, society and popular culture, international relations, as well as technology and innovation – analyzed through the eyes of academics, business and industrial professionals. From the hopes and fears on issues in global governance with Chinese characteristic to the Chinese dominance in science and innovative technologies, we hope that hearing from some of the foremost China observers’ views could help us to map out China’s existing position and prospects.
