As the US-China trade war moves into the new decade, phase 1 of the trade deal has left China's industrial policy issues unaddressed. Meanwhile, the Chinese economy is likely to decelerate amid a global synchronized slowdown and geopolitical flashpoints. 2020 will also see China emerge as a "moderately prosperous society in all respects."

Sitao Xu, Chief Economist and Partner at Deloitte China, will share his predictions on China's economic outlook and policy responses.
Anticipated topics include
- Preview of the 14th Five-Year Plan (2021–25)
