PublicAffairsAsia and Edelman released “The New Realities: Public Affairs, Trade and China’s 12th Five Year Plan”, the latest White Paper in the Public Affairs Dialogue series.

Following the 2011 Public Affairs Dialogue survey and roundtable, this impactful 16-page report examines the practical public affairs challenges arising out of the significantly increased focus on Sino-global trade and investment.

Its key conclusion is that global MNCs remain bullish about future trade relations with China, but are under-equipped to deal with the increasingly complex political, regulatory and stakeholder landscape. In addition, it notes that the same mismatch is now being felt by Chinese corporations and State-Owned Enterprises as they take their operations out into the wider world.
