With China entering a new phase of growth, two key considerations weighing on its economy are the financial deleveraging campaign and the Sino US trade war. China’s ambition of transforming itself into a consumer-driven economy may hold as the government pumps up infrastructure spending to boost economic growth. As China’s economy pivots to a new direction, what can the global finance and investment community expect?

Organized in association with Fitch Ratings, the forum will highlight discussions around China’s new economic cycle, as well as the challenges and opportunities that this new phase will bring to the global capital markets.
