China’s transition will exhibit certain down market conditions (even with growth). Unanticipated interruptions in commerce, and consequent unexpected impacts on financial performance, caused by policy influences and triangular debt factors are inevitable and must be planned-in. Margin pressure will only intensify, especially vis-à-vis subsidized state-owned enterprises and local champions. Compliance costs may jump as regulatory intensity increases--and significantly so if defense is needed to address accusations of illegality. Cost management will be critical to success, but so too will be maintaining necessary investment in the right places. This webcast will dimension everything a CFO needs to know about China's slowing economy.

All registrants will receive a complimentary copy of the report. For more resources on this topic, please visit:
