China's World

China's World, the briefing book we specially prepared for The Global China Summit, presents selected highlights of our analysis on China, drawn from our global expert network and in-house team. It addresses:

  • China's economic growth;
  • its presence in foreign markets;
  • its relationship with the United States; and
  • the "youth effect" of China's demographics.

The Summit

Experts looked at China’s capital and trade flows and its quest for energy, commodities, assets and skills abroad. Is the U.S. ready for the next phase of Chinese engagement? What does China’s move to diversify out of Treasury bonds and into assets mean for the U.S. and U.S. business? With the aim of fostering a better understanding about China in the U.S, we also discussed the new and future China: What is it like to live and work in China these days? How does it vary in different regions of the country? We focused on youth -- their outlook, lifestyle, growing wealth -- and discussed the ongoing social change in this country of 1.3 billion and why it matters to the rest of the world.
