Law and Common Prosperity Series 

The Chinese government has recently outlined its vision of promoting “common prosperity” as the next stage in China’s development. Aimed at tackling China’s perennially high levels of income inequality and inadequate social support, the phrase signals a policy aimed at distributing wealth, expanding social mobility, and building a more effective welfare state. China’s ongoing crackdown on its Big Tech firms, with its heavy focus on leveling the playing field for competition in the tech sector, is just one example of this policy in action.  Centre director Angela Zhang will open our series with her presentation on China’s great reversal in regulating the platform economy and the logic behind China’s volatility in regulatory governance. Our invited guests will then discuss potential tax reforms and how they may affect those at the top of China’s income bracket as well as the tech giants.   Our distinguished guests will also talk about the recent labor law reforms on the welfare and protection for gig workers in the digital economy. Join our virtual series to learn about the impact of “common prosperity” on Chinese regulation and governance in the years to come.
