China in the World Economy

Webinar

The period of spectacular growth in China appears to be ending. What implications, political and economic, will the normalization of Chinese GDP growth have for the PRC, the Pacific region, and the world economy, which has come to rely on China as the workshop of the world? Will a combination of high technology and low wages continue to serve the CCP well, or will popular discontent and economic stagnation destabilize the PRC leadership, and by extension contribute to already high geopolitical tensions with the US and its Western allies? How should the Belt and Road initiative be understood given this conjuncture?
