The Conference Board Economics Watch® - Emerging Markets View
Sign In to access this Webcast
This monthly webcast (upgraded from a quarterly to a monthly webcast) provides the latest insights from TCB’s Economics Team on the growth performance of major emerging markets, especially the outlook for China, India, Brazil and Mexico as well as Southeast Asia.
The special focus of this webcast will be on intangible investment in China. Intangible assets drive innovation and contribute much to a country’s competitive edge in the economy. China’s intangible investment share of GDP has risen swiftly over the past two decades, but despite the substantial top-line growth, it appears that overall spending on intangibles in China has largely been policy driven. In September’s Emerging Markets webcast, we will examine China’s intangible investment patterns, efficiency, and competitiveness compare to other countries.
