Chinese state-controlled businesses are assumed to be following Communist Party or security service orders with little concern for their own commercial interests.
Private Chinese firms are conflated with state enterprises despite the enormous growth of the Chinese private sector over the past two decades. Lurking behind these judgements is a biased frame of reference that views Chinese investors primarily as a threat, especially when compared to foreign investors from elsewhere.
Dr Colin Hawes, Associate Professor and Director of Courses in the Law Faculty at UTS, will challenge these myths through case studies of major private and state-controlled Chinese corporations.
