Asia Financial Forum
March 7, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am$20
China and Asia would in principle benefit from stronger growth in the United States due to fiscal expansion. However, the climate for exports to the US seems have become harsher. Louis Kuijs and David P. Loevinger will explore critical questions given today’s economic climate. For example, how is China positioned for more protectionist U.S. policies? How will policymakers’ efforts to stabilize both the renminbi and the amount of foreign exchange reserves be affected by a globally strong U.S. dollar? While China is entering 2017 with decent growth momentum, what will be the impact of measures to contain housing prices and a change in tone in macroeconomic policy? Which Asian countries are best placed to outperform in 2017? Further out, what does the shift in U.S. economic and trade policy mean for Asia?
