Here at CSIS we continue to track the progress of Chinese president Xi Jinping’s economic reform efforts alongside the Chinese Communist Party’s anti-corruption drive. Recently, Freeman Chair in China Studies Chris Johnson hosted a wide-ranging conversation on the progress and contradictions of the reform process with two prominent China-watching economists, Barry Naughton of the University of California San Diego and Tom Orlik of Bloomberg during a China Reality Check event. We also review the region’s news and share our one to watch. Hosted by Colm Quinn. Audio edited by Samuel Ellis. Produced by Jeffrey Bean.
