In late October, China's leaders have formulated their policy priorities for the coming five years as well as a couple of long-range objectives for 2035. While the 14th Five Year Plan will be adopted in March 2021 only, it is already clear that innovation, the promotion of technological independence and the strengthening of domestic consumption will play a major role. With the Chinese market playing an ever bigger role for the more than 5000 German companies in China as well as for many German exporters, we want to provide a first insight what to expect.
As the saying goes: If you know your way, you do not have to decide anew at every crossroads. In order to help you define your way before the new year 2021 starts, the German Chamber of Commerce in China (AHK), together with the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry (DIHK) have invited three distinguished speakers for a one-hour discussion on China's plans for the future and possible implications for German companies.
Tune in on December 15 at 4 p.m. (China afternoon tea time) respectively 9 a.m. (German breakfast coffee time) to listen to and ask questions to Mikko Huotari, Director and Max Zenglein, Chief Economist from the renowned Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS). Noah Barkin, Managing Editor at Rhodium Group and Senior Visiting Fellow at the German Marshall Fund (GMF) will add spice to the discussion be commenting from a US-American perspective. Dr. Volker Treier, Member of the Executive Board of DIHK and Chief Executive of Foreign Trade will moderate the discussion.
