China Law Blog’s own Steve Dickinson will be the Keynote speaker at the China Economic Review Breakfast Series on Friday, September 26, at the JW Marriott Hotel at Tomorrow Square. Steve’s talk will begin at 8:40 am, but the breakfast itself starts at 7:30 am.
CER describes this event as follows:

Following the sold out China Economic Review Breakfast with Andy Xie, we have our next event coming up on September 26th, this time featuring guest speaker Steve Dickinson, Partner and China Manager of Harris Bricken.
As a renowned lawyer and long term China resident, Steve Dickinson is particularly knowledgeable on the legal and economic landscape of China. He is the author of the popular China Law Blog. Steven was named as one of Washington State’s “5 Most Amazing Attorneys for 2005” by Washington CEO magazine and has published many articles on China in prestigious law journals, including Columbia Journal of Transnational Law. Steve was the first attorney invited to China by an independent Bar Association and lectured (in Chinese) to Shanghai Bar Association on United States law from 1996 to 1998.
China’s growth will inevitably slow and Steve Dickinson believes that China’s flattening growth curve will not follow the straight line of the optimists nor the parabolic crash of the pessimists. Join Steve as he discusses the reasons for the slowdown and his theories on the growth curve. Graham Earnshaw, editor-in-chief of Xinhua Finance, will also join in the discussion.
This follows the first three successful breakfast events in the series from June to August at which China experts James Kynge, Andy Rothman and Andy Xie spoke of their concerns about inflation and restructuring. This fourth breakfast once again offers you an opportunity to gain insights into China’s fast-shifting economic scene, keep up to date and network with other key people in the China business community.

Tickets are only RMB 300 for individuals and RMB 2000 for a corporate table of 8.
