Fang Cai's book Perceiving Truth and Ceasing Doubts: What Can We Learn from 40 Years of China's Reform and Opening-up? was published in Hungarian by the Publishing Office of the Antall József Knowledge Centre (AJKC) in October 2019. In it, the author provides a comprehensive description of China's successful development path by citing a host of facts and economic data, and explains how China's opening-up policy has been able to boost the high-speed growth of the country’s economy in the past 40 years. By analysing a variety of issues, the author goes through the different stages of economic development and China’s emerging challenges, while also pointing out that further reforms can help achieve sustainable growth.

The Antall József Knowledge Centre, the China-CEE Institute, and the Institute of European Studies at Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) are jointly organising a roundtable discussion and book launch for the Hungarian edition to analyse the key issues of Chinese economic growth resulting from the reforms of recent decades with the involvement of acknowledged experts, while also shedding light on the economic risks facing China as a modern superpower.
