“Year of the Boar” OR “Year of the Pig”?
January 26, 2019 - Denver
2019 will be Year 4717 in the Chinese calendar.
How will the Chinese economy engage with the rest of the world?
Will it be the cute cartoon pig playing nice with others or will China’s economy be more like the ferocious boar ready to devour its rivals?
How will China’s actions affect its neighbors and the rest of the world?
Key issues to be explored include the sources and sustainability of China’s growth, and the implications Beijing’s policies will have on the U.S. and global economies. Neal Rappaport has worked on Asian economic issues for over 20 years and has traveled throughout China and the region. His insights will shed light on the future of the world’s second-largest economy.
