CHINA Debate brings decision makers and China experts together to discuss issues that inform China and China-related business and investment decisions in three venues: CHINA Roundtable, CHINA Issue Forum, and CHINA In-House Seminars. Here’s a clip, about 30 seconds, that conveys this…
The next CHINA Roundtable convenes on June 6 at the Harvard Club of New York. And, we have excellent presenters on key China issues. Have a look.
If you are in NY on May 21, you might want to attend ‘U.S.-China Economic Relations in the Next Decade,’ 9:30am-11:30am.
An outstanding cast of speakers (below). Here’s part of the blurb:
This discussion will draw upon the findings and recommendations offered in U.S.-China 2022: Economic Relations in the Next 10 Years, a groundbreaking study on the evolution of the U.S.-China economic relationship over the last three decades and an in-depth look at opportunities for future cooperation. The study is sponsored by the China-United States Exchange Foundation.
Featuring remarks by:
Henry Kissinger, Former U.S. Secretary of State (and others, below) More
From the guy who did the $3.2 billion Baha Mar development deal with China State Construction, here is part three of Joel’s presentation, ‘Chinese Outbound Real Estate Investment.’
Here the second part of Joel Rothstein’s presentation, ‘Foreign Investors in China Real Estate’:
Joel Rothstein, a partner at Paul Hastings and one of the preeminent foreign real estate lawyers in China, was fortuitously in New York at the last CHINA Roundtable. Here’s the first of his three presentations about China’s six major real estate policies:
Beijing has come out with milder policies to curb home prices at the local level. Credit Suisse’s Du Jinsong predicts housing prices will continue to rise. Here’s his interview on CNBC:
Fareed Zakaria sums up very well the challenges facing China’s new leadership–and in under four minutes, Not a word wasted:
I just found this March 2010 Christine Amanpour interview with Ai Weiwei, ‘The Power of Art and the Internet for Chinese Dissident.’ Excellent.
And, here’s the transcript.
You have to love the diehards. As in ‘Paradise Lost: In North Korea, Chinese Maoists Find The Land Of Their Dreams.’ A grand and illuminating story from The Economist.
‘For most members of the group of 15 tourists (except one who was there to report for The Economist) the visit to North Korea was a welcome relief after a grim year. As die-hard Maoists, they believe that China’s leaders are betraying the ideals of the communist country’s founder and leading it to enslavement by the West and perdition. The past few months have seen the purging of their idol, a Mao-quoting member of the Politburo, Bo Xilai, and the closure by the Chinese government of some of their most outspoken websites.’
“I love [North] Korea!” exclaimed one of the tourists, who teaches physical education at a school in the central province of Hubei. “It is like a pure maiden, while China is like a heavily made-up young wife,” he went on, to murmurs of approval from others as they drove through Pyongyang’s grim streets. The teacher jokingly asked an accompanying guide how he could emigrate to North Korea.
