ChinaTalk with Peggy Liu

How green will the Chinese transformation be? Last year China announced that it will become carbon neutral in 2060, while its latest 5-year plan (2021-2025) includes numerous ambitious goals related to green technologies and industry. The country is clearly rapidly moving towards green transformation, and it is quickly becoming the global leader in solar and wind-powered technology, energy storage, and in the electric vehicle sector. However, there are many challenges on the way. Huge economic and technological transformations produce both winners and losers. The rising political tensions in the US-China relations pose a new threat to Chinese technological security and progress.

In our conversation with Peggy Liu of JUCCCE, a non-governmental organization working towards a future where both personal and planetary health thrive alike, we will attempt to estimate a global impact of Chinese green transformation, and map out the main hurdles, both domestic and international, that China faces in its quest for a more sustainable economic and industrial model.

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.
