China moving towards a high-income economy: challenges, opportunities and prospects - ONLINE ONLY


From: Thursday June 30, 2022, 12:30 pm

To: Thursday June 30, 2022, 1:30 pm

China’s economic growth is facing both headwinds and great potential. With per capita income level reaching US$12,000 in 2021, China is projected to become a high-income country soon. As China continues to grow in economic size and impact, what happens in China in terms of its growth model and policies increasingly matters for the global economy. In this presentation, we explore the challenges and opportunities that China faces in its transition towards a high-income economy. A lot is at stake, and therefore in-depth and open discussions are needed to understand the forces that shape the future trajectory of the Chinese economy.
