China’s Quest for Sustainable Growth
Professor Kerry Brown, Associate Fellow, Asia Programme (based in Sydney)
Bronwyn Curtis, Global Economist; Head of Global Research, HSBC (2006-13)
Chair: Martin Wolf, Chief Economics Commentator, Financial Times
After three decades of rapid economic growth, some estimates show that China will become the world’s largest economy by the end of the year. The expert panel will assess the economic policies of the new government and question how they can maintain Premier Li Keqiang's stated goal of ‘fast sustainable growth’ when many economic indicators, from exports to productivity levels, are low or lowering. In addition, they will discuss Shanghai's role as a financial hub, how it can work harmoniously with Hong Kong and the challenges of creating a true international finance centre.
This event will be followed by a reception.
