China in a Turbulent Global Economic and Environmental Situation

Saturday, January 10, 2009

8:30 am - 5:30 pm EST

School of Public Policy and Management (SPPM), Tsinghua University


As the global financial crisis continues to impact economic growth predictions for countries around the globe, there is considerable debate about how the crisis will impact China’s growth trajectory and how Chinese policymakers will adapt to ensure a sustained trajectory.  In early January 2009, leading policymakers from the U.S. and China gathered in Beijing to discuss the economic prospects for China in the years ahead, and to examine how growth challenges and opportunities will affect energy and climate change policies, trade, and Sino-U.S. relations.

Wing Thye Woo and Xiao Geng, Brookings’s experts on China’s economy, discussed relevant issues, including how China might maintain its growth rate and how to overcome problems in the U.S.-Sino relationship. Additional speakers include leading Chinese experts, Jeff Sachs of Columbia University and Don Hanna of Citigroup.
