On December 5th, more than 200 high-level participants convened at the China Summit in Beijing. Edward Carr took the helm as chairman for The Economist’s fourth annual event. 

Expert speakers shared their views in a range of innovative event formats. In a session on “China’s economic reforms”, participants casted their vote on which reforms were the most necessary, and which were most likely to happen, before speakers weighed in. 

In the session “Blue skies over Beijing?” participants casted their vote on whether Beijing will meet its clean-air targets by 2015, and then took to devising solutions to China’s perennial clean-air challenges in working groups. A debate on the motion “China is a global innovation powerhouse” provided an energetic close to the summit. This live debate was held virtually between the two debaters on Economist Debates in November.
