With growth moderating and the threat of inflation seemingly contained, it appears that efforts by Chinese economic planners to manage asset prices and overheating risks are having their desired effect. Jing Ulrich, J.P. Morgan’s Chairman of China Equities and Commodities, will examine several aspects of the current economic and policy climate in China: i) which industries stand to be the main beneficiaries of policy support as we approach the next five-year plan period? ii) what does the property market slowdown mean for the broader economy and commodity markets? Can affordable housing initiatives pick up the slack? and iii) how can investors benefit from the long-term shift from an investment-driven economy to one that is propelled by private consumption?
