The world economy is facing many risks and uncertainties as it bounces back after the recent financial meltdown. One big uncertainty is the recent slowdown in China’s economy. But China still has a lot of untapped growth potential and innovative macroeconomic policies are needed to unleash it. This requires accelerating the pace of structural reform and further opening up to fuel the China’s growth engine and to ensure that the country can sustain a medium-to-high growth rate.
In such a crucial period of transition, it is important to raise pertinent questions such as: How to remove bottlenecks in the reform process? Where is China’s economy heading? And what is the appropriate blueprint for developing the country over the next five years?
The 2016 Caixin Breakfast Meeting Davos will invite domestic and industry experts, top-level economists, business thought leaders to review the latest changes, identify new trends, explore the positive interaction between China and the rest of the world, and mark out the future path of joint development.
