Economist Intelligence Corporate Network: China’s Evolving Relationships

China’s economy has significantly underperformed in 2022 with challenges related to covid-19 and the property sector weighing heavily. We estimate growth of just 3.3% this year—adding pressure to the country’s decision-makers. Randy Phillips, Managing Partner for Asia, joined other notable speakers from Automatic Data Processing Pte Ltd, NUS’ East Asian Institute and Economist Intelligence Corporate Network to discuss China’s growth strategy for the years ahead. Hosted by EICN Singapore, the event explored China’s outlook through three topics:

· The outcomes from the 20th party congress and the implications for policy and businesses working with or in China

· The economic outlook for China in 2023 – including policies related to property and Covid-19

· The geopolitical landscape between China and the United States, South-East Asia, ANZ, and other key markets
