Join renowned economists, scholars and investment analysts for a high-level discussion on economic trends and prospects for China. Will China be the engine for growth in 2015 or will its slowdown prove a global economic millstone? An OECD study forecasts that a two percentage point decline in China’s domestic demand for two years would lead to a 0.3% fall in the world’s GDP. One year after Xi Jinping’s Decisions announced at the Party’s Third Plenum meeting, Asia Society Southern California – in partnership with Asia Society centers in Houston and San Francisco – poses provocative questions to timely topics: Can China propel itself beyond the middle-income trap? Will it allow market forces to centrally drive its money, people and markets? Can its leadership decisively wean the economy away from the old drivers of growth? How will geopolitics affect China’s reforms and growth?

Forecast Asia launches a new annual program series at Asia Society. Each year, it will bring together the world’s leading economists and business visionaries to offer their best projections, debate findings, and engage in strategic thinking about longer-term trends in Asia.
