In China today, national security and ideology are reshaping China’s economic and business environment. Xi Jinping’s Dual Circulation Strategy marks out clear dividing lines between China’s economy and the rest of the world. It does so just as Western countries focus on ‘de-risking’, ‘friendshoring’ and technology competition. In order to succeed in China, foreign business needs to understand these new dynamics. Simply declaring them ‘too political’ no longer works. Companies need to reconsider and revise their China strategy.

Join Andrew Cainey (Royal United Services Institute) as he presents his new book, co-authored with Christiane Prange, Xiconomics: What China's Dual Circulation Strategy Means for Global Business as part of China Week 2023.


Having first visited China in 1981, Andrew Cainey has over twenty-five years’ experience advising businesses and governments in China and globally. He is a senior associate fellow at the Royal United Services Institute, the world’s oldest security and defence think tank, and a founding director of the UK National Committee on China, a non-profit dedicated to improving the UK’s understanding of all matters related to China. He has a First Class MA (Hons) in Economics from the University of Cambridge; an MBA with Distinction from Harvard Business School where he was a Kennedy Scholar; and is proficient in Mandarin.
