Overview

China is now the world's second largest economy and number one trading nation in terms of exports and imports combined. However, after experiencing tremendous growth for more than two decades, China’s economy is slowing down. Managing the transition from an economy driven by exports and investments to one centred on consumption and services has come with challenges. China faces some serious economic and financial risks, including falling foreign exchange reserves, overcapacity in many manufacturing sectors, bubbles in the property and equity markets, rapid credit growth and high levels of corporate debt. How profound are these risks to the Chinese economy and the rest of the world?
