    • 10:50 amSession 2: Managing the Inevitable Slowdown: How will China cope with growing internal challenges

      After years of worry about an imminent hard landing, China continues to grow at rates enviable to most other countries. While growth remains relatively fast, the sources of growth continue to change, driven by both Chinese policy decisions and market forces. In 2017 China is expected to suffer a housing market downturn, push forward with industrial consolidation and upgrading, and undergo a mid-term political reshuffle. How will these issues impact Chinese growth at home, and among its near neighbors, in 2017 and beyond?
