Date & time
The year 2020 has seen human societies hit heavily by the COVID-19 pandemic. And as the pandemic continues to unfold, all signs point to China as being the first major economy to have emerged out of the crisis. But many questions remain.
Has the Chinese economy emerged relatively unscathed? Can China contribute to global economic recovery, given its pre-pandemic contribution to global growth of around 30 per cent? What are the long-term prospects for its economy? And will the pandemic alter the dynamics between the Chinese economy and the world?
To answer these questions the China Update 2020, the China Economy Program will gather two expert panels.
