Asialink, the Confucius Institute at the University of Melbourne and Asialink Business are delighted to invite you to an Australia in the World Public Lecture "The Future of the Chinese Economy" with speakers Professor Wang Depei, Chief Economist, Forecast Thinktank and Professor Ross Garnaut AO, Professorial Research Fellow in Economics, University of Melbourne.
China has been Australia’s biggest trading partner since late 2007. The economy is experiencing a significant transformation with economic growth slowing down to a predicted 6.2% by 2017 from double digit levels. However, the urban middle class is expected to reach 1 billion, accounting for 70% of its population by 2030 driving massive consumer demand. As the Chinese economy becomes more innovation and consumption driven, what complementarities could Australia and China offer each other? What do these trends mean and what prospects are there for Australia?
At this public lecture, Professor Wang Depei, Chief Economist from Forecast Thinktank in Shanghai will walk you through the complexity of the Chinese economy and the significance for both Australia and China. Professor Ross Garnaut AO will provide an Australian perspective on the future of the Chinese economy and share his insights on how to capture the economic potential of this important relationship.
