On Saturday 14 October 2017, Young China Watchers (YCW) and King’s College London’s Lau China Institute held an inaugural one-day conference in London. Bringing together leading experts and emerging young voices on China, the conference sought to analyze China’s medium- to long-term transformation in politics, foreign policy, security, and economy, centering on the theme: “China in 2050: The World Through Beijing’s Eyes.” Our speakers came from China, the UK, France and Singapore, with nearly 200 attendees from the academic, government, think tank and business communities.

A summary report of the conference, with photos and key takeaways, is available to download as a PDF here:
