Please join the Freeman Chair in China Studies for the launch of our new report, Perfecting China, Inc.: The 13th Five Year Plan. Despite the explosive growth of the private sector in China’s economy over the last several decades, and a diminution of the role of planning in the management of an increasingly diverse economic landscape, the Chinese Communist Party’s five-year plans remain the most authoritative strategic vision on the direction of the country’s economic and social policies. Our report analyzes the recently released 13th Five-Year Plan in order to provide a window into the dynamics of China’s policy process, the trajectory of Chinese economic policies, and the implications of the plan for the business community.
Scott Kennedy
Senior Adviser and Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics
