Opinion: Building a Door Instead of a Wall for China’s Financial Liberalization

The State Council of China recently issued a statement on the further opening-up of such industries as banking, bonds and insurance. This sparked heated discussion in China. The “2017 Jingshan Report,” published by the China Finance 40 Forum, merits our attention.
