CEIBS Knowledge

Recently, the People’s Bank of China (PBoC) released the Fintech Development Plan 2019-2021, including guidelines, basic principles, development targets, key tasks and supportive measures for fintech development in the next three years. The plan has attracted a lot of industry attention. But, what is the purpose for introducing this plan? What impact will it have on the fintech industry? And, what does the future hold for fintech?
The on-going US-China trade war is unwinnable for either side because only China has the capacity to satisfy America’s huge appetite and demand for products. Even in an ideal scenario, the rest of the world does not come close to China’s production capacity so ultimately the US will have no option but to resume buying from China. By the same token, the combined demand of rest of world still leaves a significant shortfall when compared to American demand, meaning China cannot replace its American customers with those from elsewhere any time soon.

CEIBS Stories

MBA 2016 alum Dmitry Andreev on swapping Moscow for Shanghai in pursuit of a sustainable future
Earlier this year, Christoph Flink (CEIBS GEMBA2009), Mario Mazzocca (GEMBA2009), Sophia Jiao (GEMBA2018) and Mario Feuerstein (GEMBA2009) climbed the Mount Kilimanjaro. The following is Christoph Flink’s first-hand account of his experience during their adventure.


September 14, 2019. Shanghai – In October 2017, 80 business leaders from 15 countries around the world joined CEIBS as members of the Global EMBA 2017 cohort. Two years later, this learning journey has come to a celebratory conclusion. Today, the CEIBS Shanghai campus welcomed the cohort and their family members to cap that journey off in style by celebrating the CEIBS Global EMBA 2017 graduation.
As we approach Mid-Autumn Festival, a special occasion on which to appreciate the beauty and wonder of the full moon, we would like to extend our most sincere greetings to the more than 22,000 CEIBS alumni around the world. This summer, CEIBS welcomed the high-spirited MBA2021 cohort, awarded research and teaching awards to professors who have achieved outstanding results over the past year and we were officially re-certified as an accredited business school by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). In just over two weeks, we will commemorate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the PRC, and in less than two months, we will celebrate CEIBS' 25th anniversary. With so many wonderful memories to look back on and more exciting events to look forward to, we believe that this Mid-Autumn Festival will be especially joyous for the whole CEIBS community.


This year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China and the 47th anniversary of ambassadorial-level diplomatic relations between China and the UK. As such, it represents a valuable opportunity for the deepening of ties in the current “Golden Era” of China-UK relations. At this historic juncture, the UK stands to benefit from opportunities brought on by China’s consumption upgrade and supply-side structural reform, the wider opening of the Chinese market, and the Belt and Road Initiative. As both technology and business models continue to evolve, the changing landscape of the global industrial chain will undoubtedly create unprecedented opportunities for co-operation between Chinese and UK businesses.
