LSE China Conference 2019: Complexity of Growth: The Challenges of Change for China The 9th annual LSE China Conference will be held in Beijing on the evening of 13 August 2019. International politics, trade and diplomacy has changed dramatically over the past 18 months. China is operating in a very different and challenging world. The volatile nature of current international relations makes it difficult to anticipate, with much confidence, future developments.

However, China’s domestic growth, reform and development continues. This evening’s conference takes a look at economic development and business challenges and opportunity for China’s society from a diverse range of perspectives. Speakers will look at economic history, e-finance, social credits, and China’s grand strategy on global economic engagement. The eclectic mix of speakers and their themes reflexts the complexity of China’s next stage of growth and change.
