[Deep Dives: China 2023] How China Can Revive Its Economy
On March 5th, Chinese outgoing Premier Li Keqiang opened the National People’s Congress meeting with his annual Work Report and revealed a growth target of lowest “around 5%”, the lowest since 1976. For decades, the country had expanded by more than 10% annually. Even though China missed its target last year by a wide margin due to its zero-Covid policy, not many people expected this low of a target from Xi Jinping’s government. This highlights the domestic and global challenges the world’s second-largest economy is facing. What will China’s economic outlook will look like? What kind of economic policy will China need to adopt to revive its economy? Where is the future of the U.S-China economic relationship? Join us for a conversation with Dr. Yukon Huang, Senior Fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and Former Work Bank’s country director for China on Tuesday, March 28th from 12 PM to 1.15 PM ET. This webinar is the 2nd of Network 20/20’s Deep Dives: China program. To learn more about this program, please visit: https://network2020.org/deep-dives-china-2023/
