Entrepreneurship in the New Era –  The Four Decades of Reform and Opening-up

The 18th Annual Conference of Yabuli China Entrepreneurs Forum

To commemorate the forty years of reform and opening up, Yabuli China Entrepreneurs Forum takes “entrepreneurship” as its perspective.

Economic Transition and Entrepreneurial Innovation

The 17th Annual Conference of Yabuli China Entrepreneurs Forum

The economic slowdown had forced the economy to shift from a crude to an intensive one and from an imitation-oriented to an innovation-oriented one. In a market economy, enterprises and entrepreneurs played a leading role in innovation, including technological innovation, business model innovation and institutional innovation. Entrepreneurs had to face not only factor costs but also institutional costs. Over the past 30 years, we had been impressed by the infinite wisdom of Chinese entrepreneurs in facing these two types of costs. We need to learn from the lessons of the past and look to the future.

Entrepreneurs: Confidence and Motivation

The 16th Annual Conference of Yabuli China Entrepreneurs Forum

The market is based on the rule of law, enterprises are the mode of operation, and the ability to innovate is the core driver. The 15th Annual Conference of the Yabuli China Entrepreneurs Forum 2015 used rule of law, enterprise and innovation to look at economic entities and to pool wisdom and efforts to improve China's market economy.

The Determining Effects of Market Force-Conception and Action

The 14th Annual Conference of Yabuli China Entrepreneurs Forum

It was pointed out in the bulletin of The Third Conference of the 18th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, that reform of the economic system is the focus of comprehensive deepening reform. The central issue is to find an appropriate way to manage the relationship between the government and the market, so that the market can take decisive action in resource allocation and the government can govern better. There is only a literal difference between fundamental and deterministic effects, but how can this distinction be sorted out in the history of reform and how can this conceptual alternative be promoted in practice?
