CeMEAS Conversations: What’s ahead for the Chinese Economy

Prof. Doris Fischer (Würzburg University)

Professor Doris Fischer is Chair for Chinese and Commerce at Würzburg University. She has done extensive research on competition, regulation and industrial policies in various sectors in China. Her current research focus is on furthering the concept of innovation systems in the context of environmentally sustainable, low carbon development and climate change policies with a special interest in the challenges posed by large, fast developing countries to the traditional paradigm of industrialization and economic growth.

In our conversation, she answers the following two questions:
1, What are the main challenges and opportunities in the CHinese economy at present?
2, Tell us about the role of the state in China’s incredible advances in renewable energies in the last two decades.

Our video series “What is the Future of Made in China?” was filmed on the sidelines of a symposium of the same name held at the University of Göttingen on 17 July 2017 which drew together many of the leading thinkers on this topic from around the globe. In our conversations with three of these experts (Barry Naughton, Victor Shih, and Doris Fischer) we explore China’s new generation of muscular industrial policies that aim at making China a high-tech economy and innovation superpower. The conversations offer insight into what lies ahead for the Chinese economy and illuminate the implications of China’s plans for European countries with their own ambitions in an Industry 4.0 world.
