Event description

Description


China has enjoyed almost four decades of high economic growth. This growth has however slowed down in recent years due to rising domestic wages, a rapidly ageing population and falling demand for exports.

Further growth will rely on economic restructuring and deepening reforms. This China in Conversation brings two prominent economists together to discuss China’s economic growth from an Australian and Chinese perspective.

Join in the conversation and learn how China can overcome the obstacles and sustain economic growth, while considering the implications for the Australia-China economic relationship.
