What's On

Registration Closed

Amid an extremely challenging global environment, China's 14th Five-Year Plan was promulgated during the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee of the CPC which ended on 29 October. Although the Mainland economy has returned to positive growth after containing the Covid-19 outbreak, the pandemic will continue to affect foreign investment and trade. In the light of this gloomy external macro environment and slower internal economic growth, the Fifth Plenary Session also reaffirmed China's "Dual Circulation" strategy, with a new emphasis on stimulating the domestic market to drive economic development.

With more policies and strategies to be rolled out by the Central Government, the Chinese economy would undergo a significant evolution in the next year. The Chamber is delighted to have Le Xia, Chief Economist and Head of Research at the Digital Economic Research Center of PingAn Technology, to share his insights into the prospects for the Chinese economy in 2021 at a webinar to be held on 9 December.
