The 2016 LSE China Conference was held in Beijing on 16 August 2016.

Almost nine years after the start of the "Great Recession" in the West, the fragility of the global economy is still clearly apparent over the first half of 2016. The USA and Europe were at the eye of the storm from late 2007 onwards. To date 2016 has revealed how dependent the rest of the world has become on China to drive growth, with the current economic challenges and reforms in China having global implications. These global implications have not been confined to economics and politics, where the power shifts are clearly apparent, but in more recent years also extend to the world of business.

On the evening of 16 August 2016, in Beijing, LSE academics were joined by leading economists, senior executives from Chinese corporations, and opinion shapers to discuss how China is re-shaping the international economic and business environment.
