This webinar is part of the webinar series 'Staying in Dialogue with China'. The series will bring you six webinars with distinguished China-based experts, concentrated between April and October 2024.

'Staying in Dialogue with China' is organized and hosted by China Macro Group (CMG), with Caixin Global as Anchor Partner, in cooperation with the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS), the Switzerland Global Enterprise (S-GE), Chinaforum Bayern, Swissmem, the Swiss Chinese Chamber of Commerce (SCCC), the Danish-Chinese Business Forum (DCBF), SwissCham China, China Netzwerk Baden-Württemberg (CNBW), the Stein  am Rhein Symposium (stars), and the Sweden-China Trade Council (SCTC).

In the third webinar of this year’s “Staying in Dialogue with China” webinar series, Co-founder and Managing Director of CMG, Markus Hermann, will talk to Prof. WANG Zhengxu, Professor at the Department of Political Science, School of Public Affairs at Zhejiang University about China’s “economic security” as a third structural transition as per CMG’s conceptual framework of China’s political economy.

From adopting the two policy concepts “holistic view of national security” (总体国家安全观) at the 19th Party Congress in 2017 and “coordinating development and security” (统筹发展和安全) with the 14th Five-Year-Plan in March 2021 respectively, Chinese policymakers have visibly made ‘risk management”, or in EU terms “de-risking”, a strategic priority in China’s policymaking in recent years. Even though economic security is only one of sixteen security concepts of China’s broad national security notion, we use it as the main term to discuss security interests of Chinese government with highest relevance for foreign business engaging in the Chinese market.

This development was driven by a confluence of factors at play in 2020, the main year of the drafting of the 14th FYP, including China’s hardened perception of the US’ intent to contain its further rise, persisting development challenges, previously introduced ideological reframing such as the “new era” and “high-quality development” and then, importantly, President Xi’s personal reflections in the form of a pivotal speech following the initial containment of the Covid pandemic in April 2020. Since the Central Economic Work Conference held at the end of 2023, however, a recalibration of security needs can be observed through policy articulations and new concepts such as the need for a “positive interaction” between “high-quality development” and “high-level security”.

Against this dynamic backdrop, this webinar discusses evolving security needs and risk perceptions of the Chinese government, the implementation of ‘economic security’ in China’s policymaking today – for instance through concepts and policies such as “self-reliance”, “bottleneck technologies”, “manufacturing champions”, “local supply chain ecosystems” or the “new system for mobilizing resources nationwide” – as well as what this means for foreign business.

The economic potential in China's Greater Bay Area (GBA) is immense, with its rapidly growing GDP surpassing 13 trillion yuan, a dynamic consumer market of 86 million people, and strategic infrastructure enhancements fostering a conducive environment for foreign companies.

Join us at this webinar, where we in collaboration with experts with extensive experience from the region, explore how financial sector openness and simplified market access in China's Greater Bay Area unlock business opportunities - Featuring insights from the case company: Lundbeck.

The Business Environment in the Greater Bay Area 
The Guangdong - Hong Kong - Macao Greater Bay Area, also simply known as the Greater Bay Area (GBA), is a megalopolis with the largest and most populated urban area among the four largest bay areas in the world. It consists of nine cities in China's Guangdong Province, being Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Dongguan, Foshan, Zhongshan, Zhuhai, Huizhou, Jiangmen & Zhaoqing, as well as the two special administrative regions, Hong Kong and Macao. The total population is 86 million people, or 5% of China's total, and is expected to rach 100 million by 2030. Since the announcement of the outline GBA development plan in 2019, the total GDP of the area has surpassed 13 trillion yuan. Already today, GBA is not only a huge and dynamic consumer market, but also a critical export hub accounting 37 % of China's exports. The GBA infrastructure includes five international airports, advanced high-speed railway connections, and three of the World's top ten container ports.

In December 2023, China revealed a three-year action plan for the GBA focusing on increasing openness in Mainland China's financial sector with the intention of enhancing the market environment in the GBA. The plan envisions simplified market entry procedures and institutional barrier elimination in order to reduce costs and promote a sound ecosystem for business and intends to ease regulatory standards potentially boosting the attractiveness of the GBA for foreign enterprises.

While the regulations and integration of the area are only starting to take shape these years, the GBA is envisioned by Chinese Government planners to become an integrated economic area by 2035.

The EU-China Business Association, the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China, and BusinessEurope are delighted to invite you to the 'European Business in China: Position Paper 2022/2023' launch.

This Position Paper of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China is the culmination of nine months of dedicated work by 41 working groups and sub-working groups and forums. This year’s Executive Position paper outlines, how over the last year, there has been a significant shift in focus at European companies' headquarters (HQs) when evaluating China.

By prioritizing ideology over economic concerns, China's business environment is becoming less predictable, reliable and efficient. While opportunities for European companies remain, they must now develop strategies to deal with an ever-growing list of risks stemming from both emerging legislation—within and outside of China—and geopolitical developments. Join us to understand the key drivers behind these trends and their implications for European business.

By Khurram Jamil, Co-founder & President of strategic initiatives, Area9 Lyceum

With the availability of AI-powered Adaptive Learning, we can now rethink how we want to develop our organization. For the first time, we can use technology to upskill an entire group of people and have everyone receive the personal attention they need. The need for this technology has been further accelerated by the effects of COVID-19, especially in relation to China, where travel restrictions and closed borders have caused barriers relating to knowledge transfer across borders.

In this webinar, Khurram Jamil, Co-founder & President of Strategic Initiatives at Area9 Lyceum will introduce the concept of adaptive learning for workforces and explore how this technology for example can be used to ensure that workers build adequate product knowledge. Furthermore, Khurram will go through case examples of companies where the technology is applied, such as Audi and Lockheed Martin. Starting last year, companies with teams in China can use Area9’s technology thanks to local cloud hosting and support.

Join the webinar to explore how the technology will help ensure your learning organization is ready for the next decades.

Danish-Chinese Business Forum (DCBF) is a member of EU-China Business Association (EUCBA) and we are pleased to invite you to this partner webinar:

The EU-China Business Association, the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China, and BusinessEurope are delighted to invite you to the 'European Business in China: Position Paper 2022/2023' launch.

This Position Paper of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China is the culmination of nine months of dedicated work by 41 working groups and sub-working groups and forums. This year’s Executive Position paper outlines, how over the last year, there has been a significant shift in focus at European companies' headquarters (HQs) when evaluating China.

By prioritizing ideology over economic concerns, China's business environment is becoming less predictable, reliable and efficient. While opportunities for European companies remain, they must now develop strategies to deal with an ever-growing list of risks stemming from both emerging legislation—within and outside of China—and geopolitical developments. Join us to understand the key drivers behind these trends and their implications for European business.

Future-Proof Upskilling and Reskilling of Tomorrows Workers in China

Date: September 27, 2022

Event: Webinar


By Khurram Jamil, Co-founder & President of strategic initiatives, Area9 Lyceum

With the availability of AI-powered Adaptive Learning, we can now rethink how we want to develop our organization. For the first time, we can use technology to upskill an entire group of people and have everyone receive the personal attention they need. The need for this technology has been further accelerated by the effects of COVID-19, especially in relation to China, where travel restrictions and closed borders have caused barriers relating to knowledge transfer across borders.

In this webinar, Khurram Jamil, Co-founder & President of Strategic Initiatives at Area9 Lyceum will introduce the concept of adaptive learning for workforces and explore how this technology for example can be used to ensure that workers build adequate product knowledge. Furthermore, Khurram will go through case examples of companies where the technology is applied, such as Audi and Lockheed Martin. Starting last year, companies with teams in China can use Area9’s technology thanks to local cloud hosting and support.

Join the webinar to explore how the technology will help ensure your learning organization is ready for the next decades.
