Key Media Mentions on the 18 Months Since Davos Report Go back »

2018-08-21 | All chapters

The 18 Months Since Davos report has been quoted by key domestic and international media multiple times since its release. Most media delivered the report’s key message: although the pace of reforms since January 2017 has been greater relative to any other 18-month period since China’s accession to the WTO, in absolute terms European businesses are seeing few actual results. The report acknowledges China’s recent improvements in environmental protection, the R&D environment and advances in some local business environments, as well as the lowering of tariffs on many consumer goods. However, it goes on to urge the Chinese leadership to double down on economic reforms, and create a business environment that is open, equitable and well regulated, in order to diffuse the significant tensions that are building in the global economic system. Please see the key media mentions list below.
