Please join the Atlantic Council’s Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security and Global Business and Economics Program for a discussion on China’s current reform agenda and its geostrategic implications with Mr. Liu Mingkang, former chairman of the China Banking Regulatory Commission and currently honorary professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong Business School.

How China transforms domestically as it becomes a more global power is one of the most important geostrategic questions over the next fifty years. Last November, Beijing unveiled a new blueprint for how China envisions itself in the twenty-first century. Described as the “2.0 version” of China’s reform efforts, this ambitious project marks the first important step by President Xi Jinping’s new leadership and promises to be as momentous as Deng Xiaoping’s 1978 landmark decision to embark upon economic reforms. If its potential is realized, China’s reforms could put the world on a new course, with implications for global economics, security, and geopolitics. In his remarks, Mr. Liu will discuss the substance, implications, and feasibility of the reform agenda and share his views on numerous aspects of China’s economic and social future, as well as what it all means for the future of Asia and the international community.
