China Outlook Mid-2014: Growth Slows as Risk is Embraced

China's growth continues to moderate into mid-2014 as the economy digests past excesses and moves toward a more risk-based financial system. At the same time, companies have seen the impact on their China operations in a variety of ways including pricing pressures, financing crunches affecting customers, and a slowdown in construction of new infrastructure projects. Yet China's economy is still expected to grow at least 7 percent in 2014, providing important market opportunities for companies.

Please join the US-China Business Council (USCBC) for a discussion with Standard and Poor's Paul Gruenwald, managing director and chief economist for Asia-Pacific, who will share his perspectives on the economic trends and their potential impact on US companies operating in China and abroad. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.

This event is for members and invited guests of USCBC only.
