On Thursday, April 23, from 9:30 am to 10:30 am EDT we hosted the first webcast in a series of discussions focused on China. During this installment, we concentrated on China s macroeconomic environment, near-term fiscal and monetary outlook, and recently enacted government policies. How will we gauge China s recovery? Have Beijing s policies been effective, and what else might be in the pipeline? Will there be a trade-off between economic stimulus and rising debt levels? These and other questions were tackled by Gene Ma, IIF Head of China Research, who moderated the event, and featured: Ms. Wei Yao, Chief Asia/China Economist, Soci t Generale; Mr. Shuang Ding, Chief Economist, Great China & North Asia, Standard Chartered Bank; and Mr. Andy Rothman, Investment Strategist, Matthews Asia. The session concluded with Q&A from the audience.
