ChinaTalk with Ying Lowrey

Alibaba is one of the largest e-commerce platforms in the world. It is a Chinese equivalent of the American online retailer, Amazon - Alibaba’s strongest competitor. The Asian giant is not just a shopping platform. It also offers a variety of services, such as online payments, logistics services, e-marketing, and IT support for online businesses. Similar, grassroots technological start-ups that have been appearing in the communist China, are an interesting phenomenon, especially in the era of the China-US economic war and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic leading to a global economic crisis.

How can Alibaba phenomenon be explained? How important are private technological start-ups and private e-commerce service providers for the Chinese economy? What is the role of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in China's growth? What constitutes China's economic "backbone" during the US-China trade war and the pandemic? How does the Eastern giant react to the current huge economic challenges? Can China save the world economy?

We will pose these questions to Prof. Ying Lowrey from the School of Social Sciences, Tsinghua University. 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.

ChinaTalk is a series of interviews with leading global experts on China and East Asia, produced jointly by the Polish Chinese Business Council (PCBC) and SWPS University.
