Amid global environment with intensifying political tensions, military conflicts, and trade frictions, business leaders across the globe are facing a more volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) environment than ever before. The Chinese market, which had come to be valued for stability and growth, is not immune from the current uncertainty especially as the country struggles to balance restrictive pandemic control policies and maintaining economic stability. A recent study conducted by scholars from Northwestern University, Stanford University and the University of Chicago indicates that the uncertainty level of China's economic policy since the onset of Covid-19 is about twice that of five years ago, and almost five times that of 2001, when China joined the WTO.
What are the main uncertainties firms operating in China currently face? How do such uncertainties influence business? How should a visionary business leader respond?
Mr. Chen Wu, Managing Director of The Economist Global Business Review, will consider the challenges imposed by this period of unprecedented uncertainty and how to stay resilient during difficult times.
This event will be a Chinese event, and simultaneous interpretation will be provided.
在全球日益加剧的政治对立、军事冲突和贸易摩擦下，各国的商业领袖正面临着前所未有的充满了波动性、不确定性、复杂性和模糊性（VUCA）的外部环境的挑战。曾经以稳定和持续增长而受到重视的中国市场也不能幸免于当下的外部趋势，尤其是当中国政府在严格的疫情管控和维持经济稳定之间艰难寻找平衡点的时候。来自西北大学、斯坦福大学和芝加哥大学的学者最近进行的一项研究表明，自新冠疫情爆发以来，中国经济政策的不确定性水平约为五年前的两倍，并且几乎是 2001 年中国加入世界贸易组织时的五倍。
