What's On

Registration Closed

Mainland China's economy returned to positive growth in the second quarter, a sign that it is gradually recovering from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. However, questions remain regarding the health of the economy in view of the mounting external risks and challenges.

While China's industrial activities continued to pick up pace in the second quarter, consumer spending was still far below the pre-Covid trajectory. Will China's growth momentum hold up in the second half of 2020? Will consumer spending pick up steam again? How will the overall macro and policy environment affect the recovery progress? Will the U.S.-China trade conflict derail the rebound?

To learn more, join the Chamber webinar on 20 August at 1-2pm when Helen Qiao, Managing Director and Chief Economist for Greater China and Head of Asia Economics Research at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, will share her insights on the outlook for the Chinese economy.

Prior to her current position, Qiao spent more than six years at Goldman Sachs as Senior China Economist and four years at Morgan Stanley as Chief Greater China Economist. Before that, she worked at the World Bank Group (International Bank for Reconstruction and Development) in Washington DC and Lehman Brothers in Tokyo.

To minimize the risk of spreading the coronavirus, this informative session will be conducted in the format of a webinar. Upon successful registration, registrants will receive a confirmation email with a specific link to access the webinar on the event date.
