While China's abolishing of presidential term limits will ensure political continuity for more aggressive economic reforms, Xi Jinping faces a tricky juggling act – how to rebalance the economy and arrest the structural downturn in growth while also reining in financial risks. A tit-for-tat trade standoff with the United States will add further pressure on the slowing economy and complicate China's deleveraging efforts.

Join us in a dialogue with Diana Choyleva, Chief Economist at Enodo Economics, to hear her insights on China's ongoing economic reform and what to expect in 2019 and beyond.
