OXCEP China Policy Forum

Co-organised by OXCEP & TMD Centre

with the support of St Edmund Hall and the Oxford Chinese Economy Programme (OXCEP)


All Welcome.


China’s economy and society are changing rapidly, and policies have to keep up with these changes and look ahead to future changes. The transfer of leadership in China provides an opportunity to reassess existing policies and consider new policy options. This, the first of several planned China Policy Forums, examines five highly topical policy issues: technology and industrial upgrading policies; policies for financing social programmes; policies against poverty and inequality; policies for the ageing population; and the economic causes and cures of social instability. The Oxford China Policy Forum is co-organised by Professor John Knight and Professor Xiaolan Fu.
