The IFF China Report 2015
Insight and opinion from China’s top leaders, policymakers and financiers
The IFF China Report 2015 was conceived at a crucial turning point for China’s society and economy, which started in November 2013, when the Chinese leadership under president Xi Jinping and premier Li Keqiang unveiled a bold market-orientated reform blueprint. During the period from 2013 to 2015, China’s economy and its evolving growth model experienced a profound transformation, creating mixed results, greater uncertainties and diverging predictions by China watchers.
This report – the first by the International Finance Forum, and published in collaboration with Central Banking – provides readers with the IFF’s unique access to many insiders in China, as well as to its network of experts with long and rich experiences studying China on the ground.
