The Brussels Diplomatic Academy and the Belgian Chinese Chamber of Commerce kindly invite you to the following lecture:

Is the PR China already a Market Economy?

When conquering power in 1949, the Chinese Communist Party adopted the Sovjet-type system of a centralized planned economy, the antithesis of a free decentralized market economy. As from 1979, under Deng Xiaoping, the economic model in China has been gradually (and successfully) transformed into one which most economists qualify as a market economy. Professor Sylvain Plasschaert will highlight the dynamics of this systemic conversion, still somewhat in progress.    

This subject matter does not purely raise retrospective interest, but remains relevant to the economic and trade relations between the EU and China, as illustrated by ongoing anti-dumping conflicts and the frequent assertion that China represents state capitalism. 

The lecture will be given in English.
