China has been manufacturing's go-to country for cheap, efficient production. It can produce, but can it originate innovation of its own that has staying power? Macro-economic factors and cultural mores are affecting what China makes and how it makes anything. Watch this Plastics News editorial webcast to engage with two experts who will weigh in on the changing manufacturing landscape there.

Who Should Attend:
This presentation is important for anyone who wants to understand the implications of establishing a manufacturing operation in China or doing business with companies that originate from China. It is especially important for company officials responsible for supply chain management, procurement and research and development.
