Forecast Asia: China's Ambition Grows as the Global Economy SlowsVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Renowned economists, investment analysts and scholars gather together for a high-level discussion on macroeconomic trends and future prospects in China. We ask for 2015: Will China be the engine for growth or will its slowdown prove a global economic millstone? An OECD study forecasts that a two percentage point decline in China’s domestic demand for two years translates into a 0.3 percent decline in the world’s GDP. One year after Xi Jinping’s Decisions announced at the Party’s Third Plenum meeting, Asia Society Northern California poses with its center partners in L.A. and Houston some provocative questions to such timely topics as: Can China propel itself beyond the middle-income trap? Will it allow market forces to centrally drive its money, people and markets? Can its leadership decisively wean the economy away from the old drivers of growth?
Forecast Asia launches a new annual program series at Asia Society. Each year, it congregates the world’s leading economists and business visionaries to offer their best projections, debate findings, and engage in strategic thinking about longer-term trends in Asia.
