The China Debate 2020: China will Sustain its Economic Rise

Various speakers

Will China be able to sustain its economic rise? Will the economic miracle that has defined China’s development during the last four decades be a sufficient basis from which to lift it out of the Middle-Income Trap? Will the changes in the international environment unleashed by Xi’s assertive foreign policy and the US-China Trade War prove to be insurmountable obstacles? These are a few of the questions which this debate will address.

13 May 2020, Brunei Gallery, Brunei Gallery Lecture Theatre (BGLT), 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
