China’s New Economy – The Plan for Sustainable Growth
The last 20 years has seen the rapid urbanisation of China at a rate that may never be seen again. Like it or not, we have all played our part in this grand plan to move a population of over a billion people from poverty to middle class. However this “growth at any cost” approach is unsustainable and requires a fundamental shift in economic principles to prevent environmental and social unrest. But there is hope, and the Chinese government has a plan to move from a linear to circular economy and to focus on this “New Economy” driven by new industries using clean energy and requiring fewer resources.
This “New Economy” will create demand for different industries, technology and education. A demand for technology and services that solve social and environmental problems will rise. Demand for clean energy will be driven by social and environmental drivers rather than cost alone and will force the end of traditional energy providers. City planning and development will be required to build healthy liveable cities. Businesses built upon the old economy that fail to recognise this will be left behind and face a dwindling future.
Leaders of forward thinking technology companies today are divesting and investing in this future. Taking a step back from this all, we should understand how we fit into this picture and consider how we play part in the next chapter and the new economy. Join this discussion to explore how to be part of this and influence greater positive change for society and the environment.
