With the start of a new year, it’s helpful to discuss where China’s social sector is heading. Of course with such a rapidly evolving space in the world’s fastest growing economy the ability to predict the future is quite difficult. There are, though, some trends we have seen over the past year that are likely to continue throughout 2014.
I’m also optimistic that we will see more and more people getting involved in non-corporate initiatives over the coming year. Whether it is through NGO participation in Beijing, educational partnerships in Guangdong or socialpreneurship in Shanghai, 2014 is set to be a banner year for China’s social sector.
I’d love to know what predictions you have for 2014. What are you seeing in your areas of specialization and where do you see the market heading over the next year?
