Online Event: Doubling Down on China, Inc.: An Initial Analysis of China’s 14th Five-Year Plan

November 12, 2020 • 9:00 – 10:30 am EST

China will issue the Proposal for its 14th Five-Year Plan following the conclusion of the Communist Party’s 5th Plenum, which was held in late October. As is customary, the full plan will not be published until next March at the National People’s Congress’s annual legislative session; however, the Proposal and other documents provide us some big clues into China’s strategy to become an economic powerhouse. The plan is being developed at a critical time in China, as the country recovers from the pandemic, as tensions growth with the United States and others, and as the Communist Party approaches its 100th anniversary.

Please join us for a 90-minute, two-part discussion of the plan and its implications for China and the rest of the world. Senior Adviser and Trustee Chair Scott Kennedy will moderate the panels and Q&A with the audience.
