Event description
The People's Republic of China at 70.

About this Event

The People's Republic of China will celebrate its 70th anniversary on Tuesday, October 1. La Trobe University's China Studies Research Centre and La Trobe Asia will present a panel discussion in which some of Australia's leading China experts will review the PRC's highs and lows, its failures and its successes, through the 27 Mao Zedong years and the 43 years since then, of Deng Xiaoping's reform-and-opening followed by Xi Jinping's New Era for "socialism with Chinese characteristics."

The panel will also look ahead and ask whether the PRC may credibly contemplate a further 70 years, after overtaking in early 2024 the lifespan of its original Big Brother, the USSR.
