About the Seminar
Chinese economic planners in recent months have been engaged in a balancing act of deflating asset bubbles and controlling inflation without dampening growth excessively. This presentation by Jing Ulrich, J.P. Morgan’s Chairman of China Equities and Commodities, will examine the implications of three key shifts that are occurring in the Chinese economy: the shift from an ultra expansionary policy stance toward a tightening bias; recent policy changes in the all-important property sector; and the long-term shift from an investment-driven economy to one that is propelled by private consumption.
