Discussion: The sustainability of China’s economic growth has an inherent impact on global economic stability. At this event co-hosted with the Asia Society, the speakers will have a high-level discussion on macroeconomic trends and future prospects in China. They will address some provocative questions, such as: Can China propel itself beyond the middle-income trap? Will it allow market forces to centrally drive its money, people and markets? Can its leadership decisively wean the economy away from the old drivers of growth?
