Spotlight on China: Rhetoric vs Reality

Presented by

Chi Lo, Senior Economist, Greater China

About this talk

The trade tensions and coronavirus shocks have aggravated China’s weak growth momentum, which is a result of Beijing’s deleveraging policy in 2017-18. The phase-one deal signed in January this year between the US and China has not helped resolve policy confusion, nor has it given China any greater clarity on what the US wants. Australia continues its own trade war with China with recent reports suggesting China is considering escalating its trade war by targeting more Australian exports. And while Australia may have received global support for an independent coronavirus investigation, what will be the backlash from Beijing? During this webinar, Chi Lo, Greater China Senior Economist for BNP Paribas Asset Management will present: • The impact of COVID-19 on China’s economy and outlook • New policy messages from the National People’s Congress • Escalation of US-China trade/tech war • Initial thoughts about China’s trade wars with Australia
