24 Sep Beyond the Trade War: China’s Slowdown and Domestic Challenges
China’s economy is slowing. While the slowdown has been influenced by the trade war, there are other drivers at work – including modest consumer spending and industrial productivity, as well as efforts to rein in debt. Currently, China’s full-year growth forecast stands at 6% to 6.5%, the lowest on record. Beijing has introduced some business-friendly measures such as a tax cut and relaxation of restrictions on foreign shareholding in the financial sector. But there are still questions about the direction the Chinese economy is heading, Beijing’s policy directions, and the impact of the slowdown on the rest of the world.
- How should investors view current developments in the Chinese market?
- What are the key international and domestic factors influencing China’s economy?
- What are the implications for Chinese politics and policy making?
