Topic: " Sino-Capitalism in the Xi Jinping Era "
Speaker: Dr. Christopher A. McNally <i> FRGS </i>
The new Chinese leadership cohort under Xi Jinping has initiated wide ranging changes to China's economic, policy and business climate. There are at least five reform planks, including the forceful anti-corruption campaign, efforts to refurbish party-state control and improve legal rule, economic reforms, social reforms, and international policy initiatives to engender a Chinese renaissance (Silk Road; AIIB; Russia; etc.). This seminar will examine aspects of these new reform initiatives, arguing that they essentially reflect the dynamics of China's emergent capitalism - Sino-capitalism. In fact, they follow Sino-capitalism's basic logic of continuing forceful economic liberalization, while all along retaining and strengthening state control over crucial areas of socio-economic governance. The paradoxical nature of China's economic and business climate thus continues to be reproduced: a state-guided form of capitalism is continuously adapted, in the process strengthening both private entrepreneurship and market forces.

<div class="descr">Many current strategic foreign policy challenges are reminiscent of those we have faced for decades: dealing with terrorism and instability; negotiating global agreements on trade and other issues. But today, technology and public expectations are changing both the tools and the context, enabling and requiring real time engagement with the public at home and around the world. And with foreign policy less exclusively the preserve of governments, diplomats now often work in partnership -- not only with other diplomats -- but with NGOs, foundations and other influencers.
Chris O'Connor has been the British Consul General in Los Angeles since August 2013. He represents the UK government in Southern California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Hawaii and US Pacific Territories. He promotes trade and investment, scientific cooperation, creative and media collaborations and educational partnerships between the UK and the southwestern United States. He also oversees delivery of essential consular services to a 600,000-strong British resident community and British visitors numbering over a million per year.
