CHINA’S ECONOMIC ‘NEW NORMAL’: IMPLICATIONS FOR REGIONAL GROWTH AND GLOBAL DEMAND

11:45-13:00 Pavilion 5, Conference Hall 5.3
China’s GDP growth has recently slowed, and the country faces substantial deleveraging challenges and a need to further spur domestic consumption. However, these changes, if successfully implemented, could put China on a more sustainable growth trajectory. As a lower growth rate becomes the ‘new normal’ in the Chinese economy, what are the implications for Asian economies, which are the most dynamic in the world? How is China’s economic restructuring strategy likely to impact global demand, and what is at stake for investors and business worldwide? What are the potential risks to global growth as China continues its restructuring programme?
