China’s enduring growth: Capitalising on global trends

Commentary

PwC 17th Annual Global CEO Survey – The view from China:

As the global economy begins to show signs of recovery CEOs around the world are starting to shift their focus from ‘how can we survive?’ to ‘how can we grow?’
But for China’s CEOs, who have been in growth mode for much of the last three decades the question at the top of their minds is ‘how can growth be sustained’?
The findings from PwC’s 17th Annual Global CEO Survey show that China’s CEOs are confident about the future growth, but also recognise the challenges that come with a maturing domestic economy. Tax burdens, rising labour costs and over-regulation are key concerns.
China’s CEOs are responding by continuing to focus on efficiency, while also adapting their businesses to capitalise on global trends of technological advances and growing urbanisation, as well as major domestic economic reform.
