After a two-and-a-half-month delay, China held its annual Two Sessions (Lianghui) meetings at the end of May. These are the country's most important legislative meetings of the year and set China's government budgets, domestic and international policy priorities, and economic targets. This session marked the end of the 13th Five-Year Plan, the adoption of the new Civil Code, the abandonment of a 2020 GDP target, and introduced new legislation on disease control. It also drew international rebuke by passing a draft decision that will allow the National People's Congress Standing Committee to begin drafting national security legislation, effectively sidestepping the "One Country Two Systems" framework between Beijing and Hong Kong.
AmCham Shanghai is pleased to welcome Brunswick to give a read out of this year's Lianghui meetings. St. John Moore, Partner and Head of Beijing at Brunswick will present key political and economic takeaways and take audience questions.
This webinar will be hosted using Zoom. Attendees will receive a Zoom link in advance of the webinar.
