E1: Year of the Dragon—China’s Place in the World

China’s once-staggering economic growth has stalled. It now faces myriad challenges, including persisting property market woes, rising geopolitical tensions and weak consumer demand. How China responds will have broad-reaching implications for the rest of the world. Join Lucy Baldwin, Global Head of Citi Research, and Johanna Chua, Citi’s Head of Emerging Market Economics, as they discuss China’s short- and long-term prospects, its policy responses and priorities, its trading-partner relationships, and whether it could suffer the same fate as 1990s Japan.
