About this event

Co-hosted by Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business and IE Business School

Since China’s economic reforms in 1978, huge numbers of private family enterprises have been set up and now play a major role in the economy. Many statistical sources suggests the contribution of the private sector to GDP in China has grown to at least 60% in recent years, of which 85% are from family-owned private enterprises, making a major contribution toward technological innovation, as well as creating jobs. Now, with the post-pandemic economic recovery, private family-run enterprises in China play a more significant role than ever before.

Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business joins IE Business School to co-host the webinar, “Understanding Family Businesses in China: the Path, the Trend, and the Future,” to launch a joint report examining the role of private family-run enterprises and the challenges they face in the near future.
