Can the restructuring of China’s economy create a more sustainable growth path?  After three decades of very rapid growth, China experienced a slowdown in its economic performance during the past two years. Underlying this slowdown is the exhaustion of China’s investment-led, hyper-growth model which has relied on high public and private investment and strong export performance.  If China can successfully transition to a more mature growth model that relies more heavily on consumption and the rise of advanced service industries, then a slower growth rate could lead to a much healthier, sustainable economy. However, making such a transition will require a fundamental realignment of the economic incentives that are currently in place to drive investment and productivity growth. The coming three to four years will therefore dramatically determine the growth opportunities for global business operating in China.

Join The Conference Board’s Chief Economist, Bart van Ark, in a conversation with a region expert and business leader speak about future scenarios for China’s economic and business environment.
