China Breakfast Seminar 23.5.2017
Today China is already the world’s largest economy in purchasing power parity terms. However, amid global and domestic uncertainties, the Chinese economy is facing tough challenges. GDP growth rate fell to 6.7% in 2016, while still the highest among the major global economies.
The “New Normal" of the economy, together with China’s new initiatives, such as “One Belt, One Road”, “China Manufacturing 2025”, and “Supply-side reform” create new challenges and opportunities in an increasingly complex operating environment for multinational companies (MNCs).
PwC and Finland-China Trade Association will organise a breakfast seminar on 23rd of May in Helsinki at 8.00 - 10.30. Visiting experts from PwC China will share the latest China insights and experiences and you will also have a opportunity to discuss with them.
We trust that the breakfast seminar will help you gain a better understanding of China’s current business environment and trends as well as the finance and taxation status in China, the industry issues specific to your business, and discuss innovative strategies for your China business to transform and develop further.
