Forecast of China's Economy for 2021


TIME: Tuesday, February 2, 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EST 

PLATFORM: Zoom webinar (call-in information will be provided following event sign-up)

DESCRIPTION: The United States and China are undergoing major economic challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, China was the first major economy to show a strong recovery after bringing the virus largely under control. Nomura and China International Capital Corporation put China’s GDP growth for 2021 at nine percent, and its rapid rebound from the coronavirus pandemic may help the economy overtake the United States to become the world’s largest in 2028. Is China’s economic outlook indeed this bullish? What are potential obstacles Beijing could face from a poor global economy and/or domestic challenges such as weak consumption and ongoing tensions between state control and the private sector? How will tariffs, trade imbalances, and geopolitics affect China’s economic prospects?


Join the National Committee, in partnership with Peking University’s National School of Development (NSD), on February 2 at 7:00 p.m. EST for a virtual program with Dr. Hu Yifan, Dr. Huang Yiping, and Dr. Yao Yang on a forecast for China’s economy in the coming year.
