    Liberalisation of the RMB: Benefits and Risks

    The new Chinese leadership wishes to fundamentally alter the country’s economic growth model and have proposed sweeping reform of the Chinese financial system.  These changes include making credit allocation conform to market criteria and opening the way up for the creation of new financial instruments.  But perhaps the most fundamental alteration will be the liberalization of China’s foreign exchange to promote greater capital flows in and out of the country.  Professsor Zhu Ning of the Shanghai Jiaotong University’s Institute for the Advanced Study of Finance will discuss the payoff and risks involved in this change, both which are potentially huge.

    What you want vs what the boss thinks you want

    You aren’t going crazy. What you want and what your boss thinks you want are not at all the same.

    Join us as Angie Eagan, MRIC Group Managing Director for China, presents key findings of the newly-released 2014 Talent Report. Based on the responses of 5000+ professionals in Greater China and Singapore, the report (now in its 4th year) reveals several significant gaps between what talent really want from an employer and what employers actually offer to their staff. One of the key findings is (surprise, surprise) employers don’t adapt well to their employees’ different expectations on work-life balance.

    Note: This Talent Report data differs from MRIC’s Talent Trend Briefing, released in January and presented to the FCCC earlier this year.
