"The Chinese Dream" – The fifth Forum on China Studies

March 23, 2013

The focus of the Fifth Forum on China Studies was "The Chinese Dream" – or, what kind of path will China take in the next 20 years? Mr. Rifkin presented a keynote speech over Skype, outlining what China can do to differentiate itself from the path many Western countries have taken. Investments in renewable energy, a full-scale shift to a Third Industrial Revolution, and a focus on harvesting the unique physical and cultural characteristics of China were the key points of the presentation.
