This year marks the 45th anniversary of China's reform and opening up policy. Thanks to the enforcement of such a policy, China has become the world’s second largest economy – or the largest by purchasing power parity, from an economic backwater. It’s a major trade partner for more than 140 countries and regions and contributes some 30% to global economic growth. What does it exactly mean when we talk about reform and opening up? What experiences can be learned? And what challenges does China face to maintain the positive momentum? To discuss these issues and more, we are joined by Atul Dalakoti, executive director of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry; Wang Dan, chief economist at Hang Seng Bank in China; and David Mahon, executive chairman of Mahon China Investment Management.
