Following the recent launch of the EIU's special report on foreign investment into China<>, we would like to invite you to a webinar panel debate on the opportunities and challenges to international investors of China's consumer boom. Tune in to the webinar this Thursday to understand key issues surrounding China's consumer boom, including:

 *   Why is international investment in China shifting its focus from export industries to retail demand?
 *   What is driving the increased spending power of the Chinese consumer?
 *   What are particular areas of opportunity for international investors looking to establish a stake in this market?
 *    What barriers are international investors facing in China today and what do those barriers mean for inward investment?
 *   What should the Chinese government be doing (ie what further liberalisation) to make the most of this investment (current and potential)?

Tune in for a presentation and discussion of the report with the following EIU panel on February 16 at 2:30pm GMT / 9:30am EST:
In London - Duncan Innes-Ker, EIU Senior Editor
