Is a New Round of Economic Reform Kicking Off in China? The Aftermath of the Third Plenum

Barry Naughton, Professor of Chinese Economy at UCSD

RSVP required by 5PM January 8

At the November 2013 Third Plenum, China’s leaders committed to an ambitious program of economic reform.  Now their challenge is to convert those commitments into a realistic and sustained program of change.  Barry Naughton, just back from fall term at Tsinghua University in Beijing, examines the achievements and obstacles, and discusses how these fit in with the other initiatives of Xi Jinping’s complex emerging agenda.
