Public Lecture – What Does China’s “New Normal” Mean for Local Governments?
May 20, 2016 - 09:30-11:00
As China’s growth decelerates, provincial and municipal officials must brace themselves for the impact on their regions. Over-capacity sectors will see plant closures and redundancies, local debt must be re-paid (or restructured through debt-for-bonds swaps) while new industrial templates, urbanisation quotas, vastly improved transport links and newly-identified “city clusters” all offer possibilities for regional development. Who will be the winners, and who will lose out?
