This 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.
As a special topic, this month’s webcast will focus on how slowing in China’s economic growth will impact businesses in China and other emerging economies. As China faces challenges from declining productivity, mounting financial risks, and lack of economic and political reforms, in the medium-to-long term we expect a “soft fall” in growth to about four percent, including negative growth for certain sectors and regions. In October’s webcast, we will provide a preview of our upcoming report on how slowing growth in China will impact companies looking to optimize investment and sustain growth.
