China’s New Economic Trajectory?: A Reform Update and Forecast for China’s Economy in 2014

Optimism is high following a series of Chinese economic reform announcements. With the conclusion of the Central Economic Work Conference and the Third Plenum, the Chinese government has set the tone for economic growth in 2014 and beyond. However, the government is also facing a variety of nagging challenges: local government debt continues to rise, overcapacity looms in a variety of industries, and export growth remains muted. 

What is the current economic picture and how will it impact corporate strategies in 2014? Wei Li, an economist at Standard Chartered Bank, will discuss how recent reform developments will impact the economic outlook for 2014; and David Frey, a partner in KPMG’s management consulting practice, will highlight how this agenda might impact foreign businesses in the new year.

RSVP: Please respond to Cindy He with your name, title, and company affilitation if you plan to attend.
