Title: Challenges of China's Economic Transition
After more than two decades of rapid investment-led and export-dependent development, China's economy is moving to a "New Normal" of growth. Over the past years, domestic markets and innovation-driven strategies have become more important for China's economy. The transition towards a more sustainable growth model, however, also poses many challenges to businesses and government alike. New policies and practices are developed to spur productivity and consumption, but existing conditions often make their implementation difficult, leading to a process of muddling through rather than producing decisive change. Slow-downs in economic growth have prompted ad-hoc government interventions and have created uncertainty about market conditions for businesses. Against this background, the panellists of this SEA talk will present their perspectives on challenges posed by China's economic transition. What is the role of Chinese cities in fostering economic growth? Can China's labour market support a consumption-led growth path? How do world market conditions and trade conflicts shape economic change? Bringing together business, economics and political science, the panellists of this SEA talk will present their perspectives on these challenges. Together with the audience, they will debate their views on the future of economic change in China.

The Suzhou Executive Academy (SEA) is a unique education platform created by International Business School Suzhou(IBSS) at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) for business leaders in the Yangtze River Delta region. SEA events bring together a community of like-minded business and academic professionals and offer a global insight into a variety of business issues, as well as the unique access to a high-level executive network.
China's multifaceted economy combined with a complex and changeable regulatory environment is a mix of both opportunities and challenges for those who are doing business, working and studying in China. Thus, the SEA's mission is to seek out and to debate the most pressing and relevant business, economic and social issues nationally and internationally. Then, combine all of this with the latest academic points of view (created through in-depth knowledge and research) and the practical know-how of key individuals from public and leading private organisations.
The SEA is organized in regular evening seminars – one every three to four weeks from 6pm to 8:30pm - during which a topic is presented and debated among the participants in a friendly academic environment which allows managers and entrepreneurs to meet peers representing different industries in an open platform created to debate and discuss together common points of interest.
The SEA aims to become the focal point of the business community of Suzhou and the Yangtze River Delta region!
