Hu Shuli: China’s position on the global stage

By Lucy Tomlinson

Hu Shuli, founder and editor-in-chief of Caixin Media, joined Asia House corporate members this morning to discuss the role of China in the new global architecture.

Topics discussed included President Xi’s defence of globalisation; foreign investment in Chinese financial markets; the reform of state-owned enterprises and China’s increasing presence on the global stage.

As one of China’s most respected journalists, Hu created Caixin Media Company Limited.

In 2008, she was named by US magazine Foreign Policy as one of the top 100 public intellectuals in the world alongside names including Noam Chomsky, Umberto Eco, and Salman Rushdie. She received the 2007 Louis Lyons Award for Conscience and Integrity in Journalism from the Nieman Foundation at Harvard University, and was called the most powerful commentator in China by the Financial Times. The Wall Street Journal cited her as one of the ‘Ten Women to Watch’ in Asia in 2006.

Corporate members represented at the table included KPMG, Arup, HSBC, Lloyd’s Bank, AirAsia, Liverpool FC and Prudential.

The briefing was part of the Asia House New Global Trade Order Series.
