Food security, energy supply, environmental sustainability and rising inequality - these intertwined issues play a crucial role in the ongoing health, or otherwise, of any nation. In China, the world’s most populous country, and one that has experienced the most complex and dynamic economic growth of the last two millennia, such issues are played out on a massive scale against a complex cultural and historical background, with national and global effect.
The SOAS China Institute houses the largest community of China scholars in Europe, with over 50 academics, and is host to the oldest professorship of Chinese in the UK. It harnesses this deep expertise to create a space where dialogue is always welcomed, where global business, NGO and government leaders, media and world-class scholars from across the world rub shoulders, argue, share knowledge and build understanding.
At our second annual China Debate, senior-level experts from different sectors explored the question ‘How healthy is China?’ and offered their personal and professional insights into China’s economic, political, cultural and environmental health.
The panel followed a Question Time format, and audience members were asked to come with thought-provoking questions for our panellists:
- Moderator: Sir Christopher Hum KCMG - Gonville and Caius College Cambridge, British Ambassador to China 2002-2005
- Ms Isabel Hilton OBE - CEO and Editor of chinadialogue
- Ms Beverly LW Sunn - Founder & President, Asia Pacific Properties Mobility Limited, SGMS-T and Board Chairperson of OKAY.com
