Discussion: The world’s second largest economy is at a crossroads. As China’s pace of economic growth slows, emerging risks suggest the need for structural changes in the economy and banking sectors. In 2013, the Chinese government unveiled an ambitious blueprint for reforms. Will China successfully overhaul its growth model to accomplish this agenda? What are some of the indicators to watch out for during this transition? Three experts from Fitch Ratings will share their insights on important issues such as sovereign risk, banking sector performance, and rising corporate leverage in China as we enter the New Year.
