China: Profits Up, But What Will Trump Do?
Corporate earnings in China are trending up, but so are tensions with the Trump administration, making this a great time to discuss the opportunities and risks related to China, a country which accounts for one-third of global economic growth (larger than the combined contribution from the US, Europe and Japan).
Join us for a discussion with Andy Rothman, an expert on China and an Investment Strategist at Matthews Asia, who will present a framework for thinking about the Chinese economy. Andy will also share his views on opportunities for investors to benefit from the world’s best consumer story, as well as prospects for US-China relations and the North Korean nuclear issue.
