China’s emergence as the world’s second-largest economy, a leading source of global growth, and a leading center of development and innovation has been one of the most important economic and business stories of the last several decades. Despite China’s importance, most outsiders do not understand the system that has both promoted and in some cases hindered growth.

In this talk, Michael Enright, the Pierre Choueiri Family Professor of Global Business at the D’Amore-McKim School of Business, disentangled the complex web of Party, State, and corporate actors that drive the Chinese system, and that companies have to understand if they are to succeed in China or in competition with Chinese entities in global business.
