Chinese consul general talks about economic and social challenges tackled in fight against coronavirus

China’s consul general in Rio de Janeiro, Li Yang, visited FGV on March 6 to talk about the challenges faced by the Chinese government in the fight against coronavirus, its impact on China’s economy and society, and measures that have been taken by the country to control the epidemic’s propagation. The event was organized by the FGV´s Rio de Janeiro Law School’s Brazil-China Study Center.

“Today I had the opportunity to talk with our colleagues about the situation in China, the country’s experiences and tools that have been used in the fight against coronavirus. I hope this event helps Brazil to protect its people and its economy,” Yang said.

According to Professor Evandro Carvalho, the coordinator of the Brazil-China Study Center, the event, titled “New coronavirus: why China can control this epidemic in a relatively short space of time,” was important as it gave participants a better understanding of the measures adopted by the Chinese government, the achievements so far, future challenges and how the epidemic could affect the global economy. He also said that the meeting was essential to discuss how the Chinese governance model played a key role in curbing the spread of the virus in the country.
