CEIBS Knowledge

The on-going US-China trade war is unwinnable for either side because only China has the capacity to satisfy America’s huge appetite and demand for products. Even in an ideal scenario, the rest of the world does not come close to China’s production capacity so ultimately the US will have no option but to resume buying from China. By the same token, the combined demand of rest of world still leaves a significant shortfall when compared to American demand, meaning China cannot replace its American customers with those from elsewhere any time soon.
China’s economy is currently transitioning from old to new drivers of growth, with rapid technological and market changes taking place, and an urgent need to upgrade the skill sets of the workforce. As a result, businesses now face increasing uncertainty with regard to corporate governance. So, what should Chief Human Resource Officers (CHOs) do to address these uncertainties in order to turn challenges into opportunities?
