China’s Rapid Drive into New-Generation Cars: Trends, Opportunities and Risks
This event will be webcast live from this page.
One of the most noteworthy elements of China’s high-tech drive is its push to develop new-generation cars. China is by far the world’s largest producer and consumer of electric vehicles, and its focus on electric and autonomous cars and promotion of ridesharing has potential global consequences for this sector and the nature of transportation. To understand these trends and their implications, the Freeman Chair’s Scott Kennedy will first provide an overview of recent developments in Chinese policies and its auto sector. He will then moderate a panel discussion with leading experts from industry and academia on a range of issues about China and the industry more generally.
This event is part of CSIS’s China Innovation Policy Series (CIPS). The purpose of this initiative, which is being carried out in partnership with CSIS’s Technology Policy Program, is to better understand Chinese innovation policy, the actual performance record of Chinese innovation efforts, as well as the implications for various industries, China’s trading partners, and the global economy.
