Demystifying China

Thursday, October 16, 2014 Alliance Networking Series

Andy Rothman China is changing dramatically, and quickly. So quickly, in fact, that much of what we think we know about the country may be wrong. Join us for this Asian Financial Forum presentation, Demystifying China, by Andy Rothman of Matthews International Capital Management. Andy challenges some common assumptions about China’s entrepreneurial spirit, its consumption-led growth, and the stability and growth in its property markets, and in its banking system. In addition to what he sees as the strengths of China’s growing economy, Andy will discuss some of remaining roadblocks to success.
