Abstract: China's economy is rebounding faster than other G20 economies and is set for healthy, 8% growth in 2021. But in the medium to long term China faces daunting domestic and external challenges. David Dollar will discuss the main challenges and potential reforms to overcome them. China faces difficult demographics with the working age population set to decline and the elderly population growing rapidly - both a social and an economic challenge. A second domestic challenge is growing financial risk because the growth model has relied overly on investment while innovation has lagged. These domestic issues are compounded by a difficult external environment of slow global growth, tensions with trade partners, and weakening institutions that govern global trade and investment.
