The Department of Political Science at Bryn Mawr College is presenting a lecture by Kiyoyuki Seguchi on The Recent Change of the Chinese Economy and Japan-China Relations.
The lecture is at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 27 in Dalton 300.
The Chinese economy has recently experienced several changes that will have a lasting effect on future development trajectories. It changed from an export-investment economy to an economy led by domestic-demand. Major manufacturing industries are reducing excessive capacity and increasing unemployment, while service industries are rapidly expanding. Another important change is the rapid growth of the Chinese middle class, who have more purchasing powers in and outside of China.
Recently, an increasing number of Chinese people are visiting nearby Asian countries including Japan. How would the increased tourism and communication of the people affect bilateral relations at the national level? How should we understand the new facets of Chinese economic development? This talk will address the impact of Chinese new mode of economic development on regional political economy and bilateral relations in Northeast Asia.
