Economics and Country Risk: China Financial Outlook

alt text

China's economy appears to be in trouble. Weakening investment demand due to the glut in industrial capacity, housing inventory, and credit market, along with sluggish global demand will continue to drain economic growth. China’s vibrant private sector, a potential engine of growth, is being held back by insufficient investment funding due to an under-developed and state dominated financial system. The 2015 stock market debacle and the surge in shadow banking have undermined confidence in the Chinese government’s management of the economy.

Key Topics:

  • What is the outlook for liberalization of the financial services sector?
  • What can we learn from the government’s response to the stock market crash?
  • China’s banking sector has surged in size on the back of economic stimulus measures, and what are the main risks to near term stability?
  • Why is the Chinese government reluctant to allow the renminbi to depreciate?
  • What are China’s exchange rate policy options, and what are the risks?
