2017 Espresso Series: International Perspectives China

Inaugural Series

Events - 6 Apr 2017

This short, sharp, morning session, was the third of four sessions in our inaugural Espresso series.

The session explored what the public administration system / policy environment of China looks like. The presenters looked at how this system works, its structure, strengths and weaknesses and issues affecting the direction in which it is heading. 

Where you may often look to similar jurisdictions such as the UK, NZ and Canada for inspiration there is much to be learnt from the dissimilar services operating elsewhere.
