China's development policy is at an inflection point. Having claimed to achieve the Deng-era development goal of becoming a "moderately prosperous society," Xi Jinping is now seeking to put the country on a new path to become a "modern socialist nation" by 2035.  To understand this evolution in macro-policy thinking in China, it is important to identify the key planks of Xi's overarching policy framework, including the New Development Concept, the Dual Circulation Strategy, Common Prosperity, and the 14th Five Year Plan. Examining each of these concepts, and understanding how they interact with and reinforce each other, is now the key to conceptualizing China's likely policy trajectory, and the ways in which it substantially differs from the trajectory of the Reform and Opening period. Please join Freeman Chair Jude Blanchette and Andrew Polk, the co-founder and head of economic research at Trivium China, for a discussion of Xi's unfolding policy framework and what it means for U.S. policymakers, investors, and businesses.  

This event was made possible through general support to CSIS.
