China’s growth slowdown: what are the global implications?

From 2015-11-25 12:15:00 to 2015-11-25 13:45:00
Venue: Italian Chamber of Commerce in Japan


ICCJ invites you to a luncheon on the possible impacts – for Europe and for the rest of the world – of the ongoing economic and financial developments in China, which have recently come to the forefront of the international policy debate.

After more than three decades of double-digit growth, which has transformed the country into one of the biggest economies and trading powers of the world, China is entering a phase of rebalancing its economic structure and a slowdown of its pace of economic expansion.

Featuring Angelo CicognaHead of Bank of Italy Representative Office in Tokyo, and Akio TakaharaProfessor of Contemporary Chinese Politics at the University of Tokyo Graduate School of Law and Politics, the talk will focus on the risks and the global economic and financial implications of China’s transition to a “new normal”.
