In this in-person talk, Prof Harry Wu examines how can China rise to the challenges of growth slowdown and productivity deterioration.
The talk begins with China's growth decline over the last decade and productivity deterioration since the 1990s to revisit the features and fundamental problems of the China model of growth post reform.
