Event Description

Summary:
The Chinese economy has become increasingly inefficient over the past few years. The most obvious indication is the decelerating growth trend, despite an ever-rising stock of debt. On top of it, the aging population challenge is looming large. Chinese policymakers have to deftly push through economic reform for brighter long-term prospects. We can see that China's new leaders are well aware that the sensible goal is to steer growth towards a relatively less painful deceleration, rather than to sustain growth rates at the cost of systemic financial risk. However, given the high corporate leverage and large-scale excess capacity, including in the housing sector, downside risk will persist and a bumpy landing remains our central scenario.
