Dr Linda Yueh, one of the world’s leading economic experts and director of the China Growth Centre at Oxford, visits the RSA to discuss China’s extraordinary economic transformation.
What drives China's impressive growth, and will it continue? The most populous country in the world has undergone a colossal transformation – surging from its position as one of the poorest nations in the world to its second largest economy, and the National Intelligence Council predicts it will be the world’s largest by 2030. The country is affected by its transition from central planning and the various challenges of a developing country, so how has it managed such extraordinary growth?
Dr Linda Yueh, one of the world’s leading experts on Chinese economics, joins us to examine China’s economic transformation, and offers insights into the global ramifications of its rise.
Speaker: Dr. Linda Yueh, BBC’s chief business correspondent, director of the China Growth Centre and fellow in economics at St Edmund Hall, University of Oxford.
Chair: Isabel Hilton, writer, broadcaster and editor of Chinadialogue.
