Berlin Lunchtime Meeting

China's economic policy future: state capitalism or strengthened market economy?

12.00 - 14.15 Uhr

Max J. Zenglein, Margit Molnar, Marcel Fratzscher

The DIW Berlin and the OECD Berlin Centre cordially invite you to the Berlin Lunchtime Meeting.

In China the strengthening of market mechanisms hoped for by western businesses is making only slow progress. Instead the state and the Communist Party are expanding their influence in the economy. This has consequences for China's economic policy. In the past decades this has led to growing overcapacities and indebtedness. Now China is aiming at global technological leadership. Is this approach a threat to the liberal order of the global economy?

The event language will be English.

The lecture starts at 13:00 p.m.

We look forward to your participation, and request that you register at events@diw.de


Dr. Max J. Zenglein, Senior Economist at MERICS, is working on sector-specific and macro-economic aspects of economic development in China, German-Chinese economic relations as well as the labour market and employment in China. Before joining MERICS Dr. Zenglein worked as an analyst at the German Chamber of Commerce (AHK) Greater China in Shenzhen, and later in Beijing. He finalised his university studies at the University of New York at Buffalo, the University of Economics and Law in Berlin, the University of Hong Kong and the University of Kassel with a doctorate in political economy focusing on China.

Margit Molnar, Ph.D., is Senior Economist at the OECD’s Economics Department. She heads the China Desk of the Country Studies division in the Economics Department.

Prof. Marcel Fratzscher, Ph.D., is President of the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin), Professor of Macroeconomics and Finance at the Humboldt University Berlin, and Member of the Advisory Council of the Federal Ministry of Economics.

The aim of this series of events is to present and discuss current research findings in applied economics. Since they were first introduced in 2001, the Berlin Lunchtime Meetings have become established as a forum for debate and discussion between political advisors, the private sector, and representatives of interest groups in Berlin's scientific community. The Berlin Lunchtime Meetings are jointly organized by DIW Berlin and OECD Berlin Centre.
