The China Paradox:
Rich, Developing, and Still in Need of Support
China is the world’s second largest economy, dispenses international aid, builds large infrastructure projects across the globe, and provides low-interest loans throughout the developing world. It has also lifted hundreds of millions of its own citizens out of poverty since reform and opening began four decades ago. Yet approximately 6.5% (90 million) of China’s population still lives in abject poverty (less than about $1.90 per day). In this respect, and many others, China is still a developing country and needs international support, whether in poverty alleviation, environmental protection, early childhood development, or a variety of other areas. This panel will discuss China’s present challenges and what the international community—governments, corporations, and even individuals—can do to help.
In this panel, Young China Watchers founder Frederick Tsai will moderate a discussion between Give2Asia's President and CEO Birger Stamperdahl and China Country Representative Xiao Rong as they speak on the challenges and complexities of philanthropy to this region. They will also be available to discuss opportunities for investment and collaboration with potential donors.
