China's next decade: UK businesses should follow closely
From the 16th to the 20th of October, China’s ruling communist party (CCP) held its quinquennial Party Congress.
The 20th Party Congress of the Communist Party of China has seen of the largest reshuffles in recent memory, with XI Jinping not only staying in power for a third term but also further cementing his power.
Yet the unprecedent concentration of power also raises serious questions about China’s reform trajectory and its long-term economic development, as the new leadership faces a series of daunting challenges ranging from zero-Covid, a struggling property market and uncertainty over the country’s regulatory environment. Join us on for an exclusive briefing on one of the most important global political events.
Join us on 3rd of November to discuss and debrief on what happened at the 20th national congress and what issues could lie ahead for your UK business.

- Learn and unpack the priorities of the new leadership;
- Understand how a new generation of Chinese leaders are likely to respond to potential challenges that China could face;
- Gain insight on the impact of the government's position towards zero-Covid and the economy;
- Understand what it means for UK-China relations.
