World Economic Forum Lead Writer Interviews CDI Experts

On June 28, Peter Vanham, lead writer and US Media Lead of World Economic Forum, interviewed Dr. Liu Guohong and Dr. Liu Yu of CDI. Discussion surrounded Shenzhen Special Economic Zone’s success, its construct, and replicatory value for other developing countries, and the relationship between global climate change and world economic growth. Stable political and social environment is crucial prerequisite for the development of SEZ, said Dr. Liu Guohong. In terms of the ongoing struggle to balance reducing carbon footprint and maintaining economic growth, Dr. Liu Yu believes that climate change does not necessarily restrict economic growth. On the contrary, new business opportunities have risen along new energy and related industries, as seen in electric cars manufacturing.
