China was the “saviour “of the global economy after the financial Crisis of 2008.  Its massive stimulus was worth over $10tn from 2009 to 2014 – half of the total amount.

But now China’s new leadership has changed course, and has introduced its New Normal policies.  As a result, its economy is slowing, and its days of being a major importer of chemicals are coming to an end.

The new issue of the quarterly pH Report highlights the importance of the changes underway:

  • President Xi is pressing on with his reform package
  • Tackling pollution and corruption have become major policy themes
  • In ground-breaking analysis, we highlight how new car sales are slowing fast, as China develops a used car market for the first time in its history
  • We highlight the impact of the slowdown on global markets, and identify the new strategies needed for future success

I would be delighted if you could join us for a free webinar on Tuesday 30th June to discuss these key issues for the global economy and the chemical industry. As usual, this will include a Q&A to enable discussion of the critical questions for your business and investments.

Please register here to join the 08.00 BST (GMT+1hr) webinar
Please register here to join the 15.00 BST (GMT+1hr) webinar

I hope you will be able to join the webinar, and look forward to the discussion.
