China in 2017 and Risks to the Global Economy

14 February 2017 - 8:15am to 9:15am

Chatham House, London


Mr George Magnus, Associate, China Centre, Oxford University



George Magnus will join us for a discussion on China’s policy direction in 2017 and the possible risks to the global economy.

As the Communist Party of China prepares for the convention of the 19th National Congress, much hangs in the balance. How will the country’s leadership address the problem of excess liquidity that is leaking abroad? Will it continue to put restrictions on capital outflows and manage its currency? How will China manage the tensions emerging over the incoming Trump administration’s labelling of China as a currency manipulator and how can a trade war between the two countries be averted?

This event is part of the US and Americas Programme ongoing series on US and European Perspectives on Common Economic Challenges. This series examines some of the principal global challenges that we face today and potentially differing perspectives from across Europe and the US.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
