The Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce and KBC Group are pleased to invite you to an in-person event which will take place on October 25, 2022 at 17h30 at the KBC Arteveldetoren, Maaltekouter, 9051 Gent.
Our distinguished speaker, Mr. Hans Dewachter, Chief Economist, KBC Group, will deliver a speech focussing on "China's Challenges Mount: structural headwinds and the macroeconomic outlook".
China faces a number of serious headwinds to growth, ranging from the government's Covid policy to real estate woes and from shifting growth drivers to so-called decoupling. As risks increase, the macroeconomic outlook is not all doom and gloom, but policy decisions will play an important role in shepherding China back towards reaching potential growth rates in 2023 and beyond.
This event will take place both online and offline.
