Join us for an insightful Nordic Chamber webinar in Beijing organized by the Finnish Chamber, the Danish Chamber of Commerce in China, and the Norwegian Business Association. This webinar features Tuuli Koivu, Chief Economist at Nordea, providing a comprehensive analysis following China's Two Sessions, focusing on the growth target, policy updates, and long-term political direction.

China has set an ambitious growth target of around 5% for 2024. However, amidst this ambition, there are no clear indications of structural reforms or shifts in political direction. This leaves the Chinese economy heavily reliant on monetary policy and susceptible to long-term risks.

During this event, participants will have the opportunity to delve into the dynamic realm of international economics, gaining valuable insights into the implications of China's economic trajectory post Two Sessions. Don't miss this opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of China's economic landscape and its implications for global markets.
