Dr Xiang Bing, Founding Dean, Professor of China Business and Globalization, CKGSB
At the centenary of China’s Communist Party on 1 July, President Xi Jinping conveyed his latest message to the US and its allies who have labelled China their systemic rival or competitor. In the speech, President Xi said China is eager to learn lessons and take on board constructive criticism from other cultures, but “will not accept sanctimonious preaching from those who feel they have the right to lecture us”. Highlighting the systemic differences between China and western democracies, President Xi said “only socialism can save China, and only socialism with Chinese characteristics can develop China”.
To discuss China’s economic and strategic outlook amid the tensions of a competitive era, Asia House will welcome Dr Xiang Bing, Founding Dean, Professor of China Business and Globalization at the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business and a member of Asia House’s Advisory Board, to consider this topical issue with Corporate Members on Monday 26 July.
Speaking on Asia House’s digital platform, Dr Bing will consider China’s current role in the global political economy and its likely trajectory in the short- and medium-terms, as well as how China can effectively navigate an increasingly fractious and competitive global environment. He will also share his views on China’s economic prospects, particularly around digital transformation and China’s global impact as an economic disruptor. Dr Bing will also discuss the key domestic and external challenges to China’s economy and how growing criticism and strategic challenges from the US and EU affect China’s outlook. Recent policy developments, such as the dual circulation strategy, will also be discussed.
Dr Bing is the Founding Dean, Professor of China Business and Globalization at Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB), China’s first faculty-governed, independent and private business school with headquarters in Beijing. His research interests include the reform of state-owned enterprises, innovation, and the role of the private sector in China.
