ChinaTalk with Alicia Garcia Herrero

The Asian giant, China, is the second largest economy in the world. The Chinese Communist Party that rules China, has recently announced its 14th Five Year Plan (2021-2025), i.e. a five-year strategic plan for economic development. What are China’s economic and technological development plans and how can they be interpreted? What are the plans for China’s dual circulation strategy and what is their feasibility? How will the recent changes in the legal environment on outbound investment and export impact the economy? How will the new Chinese economic strategies influence trade in East Asia?

We will pose these questions to Alicia Garcia Herrero, Chief Economist for Asia Pacific at Natixis investment bank. 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.
