CEO Roundtable:
The End of China's "Reform and Opening" Era

December 8, 2021

8:00-9:30 AM PT

This summer, Beijing launched a "rectification" campaign against several industries, obliterating a trillion dollars in market cap for some of the country's most innovative private companies. What are the goals of Xi Jinping's rectification campaign, and how long will it last? What will this mean for U.S. investment in China and for global supply chains? Matt will lay out the origins of this campaign and the deeper rationale that is driving it, and forecast what it means for a range of industries moving forward.
