In Search of Sources of New Economic Growth
(In cooperation with the Foreign Correspondents Club of China)
After decades of double-digit GDP growth, China is now entering in a new phase of economic development called the ‘new normal’. While pundits and economists discuss talk of economic slowdown and hard vs. soft landing, Dr Qiao Liu asks - as China's economy transitions from investment-led to consumption-based, what will be the new sources of economic growth? In other words, what will drive China's future?
Drawing from insights in his recently-published book, "Corporate China 2.0: The Great Shakeup," Dr. LIU will explore the new driving forces in this new economy, the vital role of Corporate China and what the government needs to do to lay a better foundation for China's economic transition. This talk will explore the questions surrounding this transformation and the future of China, itself: What are the new sources of economic growth? What role will Corporate China play in China's economic future? What institutional changes/policy reforms should occur to promote entrepreneurship and foster great firms? How will China innovate?

A renowned financial expert, Dr. LIU has published numerous articles at leading academic journals including Journal of Financial Economics, Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, Management Science, Journal of Accounting Research, and Economic Journal.
