On 10 July 2012, the China Economy Program within the Crawford School, in collaboration with the Rio Tinto-ANU China Partnership, will present the twelfth China Update. Leading academics, policy makers and government representatives will discuss the latest research on the Chinese economy. Over the years, the China Update has cemented its status as Australia’s premier forum for in-depth discussion and analysis of the Chinese economy.

The 2012 China Update will coincide with the launch of Rebalancing and Sustaining Growth in China, edited by Ligang Song and Huw McKay. The book is published by ANU E Press with the Chinese Social Sciences Academic Press publishing the Chinese language version.

This year’s China Update brings together world leading experts from the United States, China and Australia to discuss the two major policy challenges presently face the Chinese government: how to rebalance and sustain growth.
