China Still Lacks a Consistent "Story"

China Still Lacks a Consistent "Story"

Posted on Tuesday, December 4, 2018

Zhiwu Chen, Director of Asia Global Institute, talks about China’s reform and why the country still lacks a consistent value and institutional system after 40 years of transformation.

Only then would the country be able to build a consistent value, institutional and cultural system, a consistent “China story” that links up its politico-socio-economic realities and its culture.
