ChinaTalk with Gordon Orr

What can we expect of China in the future? Many economists, CEOs, politicians, and commentators have been pondering this question. This is an interesting subject, particularly in relation to digital products, which have become China’s strong point. What is the economic prognosis for Chinese digital companies? What will future bring to Huawei? Can the Middle Kingdom become self-sufficient as a manufacturer of semiconductors? How will the future of the Chinese digital transformation look like? What changes can be expected in the global supply chain and will China loose in this transformation?

Gordon Orr, Senior Advisor at McKinsey & Company, a global management consulting firm, will answer these questions during an upcoming ChinaTalk webinar. The meeting will be hosted by Associate Professor Marcin Jacoby, Head of the Department of Asian Studies at SWPS University, and Zbigniew Niesobędzki, Ph.D., President of the Polish Chinese Business Council - a partner of the ChinaTalk series.
