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’?
