Economic outlook at Boao Forum

In Premier Li Keqiang’s opening speech at this year’s Boao Forum, he reiterated his confidence in China’s ability to maintain a medium-high pace of growth. His comments come in the midst of a global economic slowdown, and growing concerns over the Chinese economy. But are these fears founded? And what of the criticisms that China has been too focused on political reform at the expense of its economic priorities? Keeping in line with Boao’s theme of, “Asia’s New Future: New Dynamics and New Vision,” we also take a look at the role and potential of innovation in Asia. Is China prepared to make innovation the new driving force of economic growth? Join us for a discussion of China’s economic future with Huo Deming, professor of the National School of Development at Peking University. Xiao Geng, professor of finance and public policy at the University of Hong Kong, and John Ross, senior fellow at the Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies at Renmin University of China.
