September 26 saw the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) host co-editors and co-contributors Professors Loren Brandt and Thomas Rawski (University of Pittsburgh) to present the findings of their analysis of Chinese industrial policy and the actual performance of Chinese companies in the two sectors central to the country's innovation drive.

Following their presentation came commentary from Jane Nakano, Senior Fellow in CSIS Energy and National Security Program, and a lively and engaged Q&A session moderated by Scott Kennedy, CSIS Senior Adviser and Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics.
