China’s two sessions – why Israeli policymakers & entrepreneurs should’ve been watching
The “two sessions” — annual meetings of the National People’s Congress (NPC) and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) — just recently came to a close. If you’re an Israeli entrepreneur or policymaker, you probably should have been watching. The “two sessions” are among the most important political events in China. The meetings serve as a window into what is happening in China and what can be expected. This includes decisions that will impact both domestic and international economies. This year is particularly notable because China announced its 14th five-year plan, which for the first time was directly led by President Xi Jinping. If Israeli businesses know where to look and what to look for, this plan can reveal new opportunities.
