The Rebalancing and Growth Prospects of China's Economy

Date: 30 Mar 2018
Location: Room 512, National School of Development, Peking University

China’s leadership is trying to move from a production-oriented economy to a consumption-based, people-centered model, to rebalance its economy. The global firms that used to benefit from China’s investment boom have to rethink their strategies for the years ahead, with the country’s new economic growth model.

If you are doing business in or with China, you’d better understand how this huge economy is going and where it is heading for. You have to get a macro perspective, to truly grasp the “big picture” of China’s development so as to better understand the micro- issues you are faced with in your daily business.
