The China Symposium brings together leading academics and policy advisors to discuss the latest research on the Chinese economy.

This past year has seen momentous changes in China: a significant slowdown of economic growth, an acceleration of capital account liberalization, a spate of new initiatives in regional trade agreements including the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement, the BRICs Bank, the AIIB and the One-Belt-One-Road Initiative, and the US-China Agreement on Climate Change, just to name a few. How are these changes unfolding? How will they affect China’s growth and that of other economies?
