logo enrich webChina is in the midst of a gigantic transformation process: away from "mass" and towards "class". High follow-up costs of the old growth path, political uncertainty and buying restraint as well as authoritarian tendencies on the part of the government to cope with current challenges determine the current picture in China. At the same time, the demands of the increasingly self-confident middle class are rising. A knowledge-based economy of industrialized modernity also demands a free and open exchange of information. Join our next webinar and you are invited to form critical, differentiated and objective opinions. Please register on ENIRCH in China website.
