Time to Rethink Water | Foreign Correspondent's Club of China

Event Details

Heavily in demand from industry, agriculture and consumers, China’s water resources are ever more strained – and what water the country does have is often severely polluted. Feng Hu of China Water Risk will lay out a snapshot of the looming liquidity squeeze, as well as how rising water risks and a shifting regulatory landscape could affect trillions of RMB worth of economic output and spill over into the financial markets. And China’s water crisis is not just China’s problem, he says: policies that are “good for China” may be adverse surprises for everyone else.
