China is in the midst of a gigantic transformation process: away from "mass" and towards "class". High follow-up costs of the old growth path, political uncertainty and buying restraint as well as authoritarian tendencies on the part of the government to cope with current challenges determine the current picture in China. At the same time, the demands of the increasingly self-confident middle class are rising. A knowledge-based economy of industrialised modernity also demands a free and open exchange of information.
This webinar is designed to provide participants with a compact overview of basic knowledge of China's path since 1949 to industrialised modernity and to highlight current challenges facing the Chinese government in implementing an innovation-driven growth model. Through a contextual and systemic perspective, the participants will be invited to form critical, differentiated and objective opinions.
