MORE ABOUT THE EVENT: Marxism defines four factors of production -- land, labour, capital and organisation. China's top leadership has added a fifth -- data -- and has outlined ambitious plans to build the world's strongest digital economy by leveraging data as one of the country's most abundant resources. In this technical talk for non-technical people, we explore how China is defining the economies of the future. Kendra will talk us through the barriers that are standing in the way of China's ambitions -- and how Beijing is breaking them down.

HOW MUCH: RMB 100 for members of RASBJ or of BritCham, RMB 200 for non-members, which includes one free drink.
