Report on Family Businesses in China - IE University China Center and Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business

IE University China Center presents joint report on Family Businesses in China with Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business

The report examines the role of private family-run enterprises and the challenges they face in the near future.

IE China Center co-hosted today with Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business the webinar, “Understanding Family Businesses in China: the Path, the Trend, and the Future,” to launch a joint report examining the role of private family-run enterprises and the challenges they face in the near future.

Since China’s economic reforms in 1978, huge numbers of private family enterprises have been set up and now play a major role in the economy. Many statistical sources suggests the contribution of the private sector to GDP in China has grown to at least 60% in recent years, of which 85% are from family-owned private enterprises, making a major contribution toward technological innovation, as well as creating jobs. Now, with the post-pandemic economic recovery, private family-run enterprises in China play a more significant role than ever before.
