2017, the year of the "Fire Rooster" in the Chinese lunar calendar, will be nothing short of turbulent for China. Despite seemingly stable growth in 2016, China's economic fundamentals remain weak. Risks are mounting in many sectors in the economy, accompanying the country's structural transition. In addition, the new administration in the US and its possible radical shift in policy directions cast a heavy cloud on China’s economic stability in 2017 and beyond.
How will all these factors affect businesses? Please tune in to this webcast to learn from our experts about the situation in China.
- China's current growth stabilization masks many weaknesses and risks.
- A credit cycle tightening is in the cards in 2017, and fiscal spending will be more constrained; both will weigh on economic and investment growth.
- Consumption and services are driving and will be driving growth.
- Possible new policy directions under the Trump administration cast a heavy cloud on China’s economic stability in 2017 and beyond. Trade disruptions with the US will further depress investor confidence, add downward pressure to the Chinese currency, speed up capital flight, and potentially cause job losses in the manufacturing sector.
