Western countries are still grappling with decade-high interest rates and elevated inflation. But in China, consumer prices have remained around levels a year ago over August and September after posting an outright decline in July. And amid softer backdrop over the summer, the Chinese central bank has taken the opposite measure to its Western counterparts: cutting key lending rates. Is slower growth in the Chinese economy something to be concerned about? What role does a wobbly real estate market play in all this?

Join RBC economist Claire Fan at this TABE webinar for a deeper dive into what’s happening in China and what it might mean for the rest of the world. Together we will explore the slew of data coming out of the country, add some important context to it before bringing the conversation back to Canada.

This session has been organized by TABE Director Paul Ferley with technical support by TABE Board Member Erik Johnson
