China's tech sector has been the source of innovation, jobs and previously unimaginable levels of wealth for some. Yet in the past two years it has been humbled and even humiliated -- hammered by regulations from within the country and hamstrung by geopolitical tensions from without. When can the sector recover? With a more interventionist approach seemingly here to stay, how will China's tech sector evolve? Can it get back its mojo? Duncan Clark, author of "Alibaba: the House that Jack Ma Built" addresses these and other questions.

HOW MUCH: Members of RASBJ and partner RAS branches RMB 125. Non-members RMB 200. The price includes one free drink.
