The latest edition of this quarterly report gives you comprehensive analysis of China’s economy this year, assessing the key issues that will shape macro and market outcomes, including:

  • The economic impact of lockdowns and which sectors could benefit when the government gets a grip on the pandemic; 
  • How far the policymakers will be willing to go to stimulate activity;
  • Why we only expect growth of 2% this year – regardless of what the official data show.

China faces a far less impressive recovery than it enjoyed in 2020.
