Bloomberg Presentation: Chief Asia Economist on China

Bloomberg Presentation: Chief Asia Economist on China

Thursday, February 15, 2018
9:30am - 10:30am
Reading Room (HCHB Room 1894)


Please join us for a presentation by Bloomberg’s Chief Asia Economist, Tom Orlik, on China's growth, policy and financial risks.

At the start of 2018 and in the wake of the Party Congress, China's economy remains in a sweet spot. Growth is steady. Leverage levels show signs of stabilizing. Reform has regained a little momentum. Tom will discuss the drivers of the current positive trends, and the magnitude of the challenges still to be addressed on deleveraging and supply side reform, as well as how the risk of U.S. tariffs is seen from the Chinese side.

Tom will be joined by Stephen Jonathan, an FX and Economics Market Specialist at Bloomberg. He will provide an overview of key Bloomberg platforms, analytics and data focused on China, its financial markets and the yuan.

Note: This program is only open to DOC staff. WebEx is not available for this series.
