China today is the largest energy consumer on the globe, the largest producer and consumer of coal and the largest emitter of carbon dioxide. In recent years, Beijing has intensified the shift towards non-fossil fuels and invested large sums into renewable energy, turning the country into a global leader in hydroelectric, wind and solar energy. But how does Beijing plan to move forward after last year's coal and electricity supply shortage? How will the current economic slowdown impact China's energy structure? Does a renewed focus on supply security and coal under the 14th Five-Year Plan endanger the "dual carbon" emission goals for 2030 and 2060 and thus the energy transition? And what impact does the war in Ukraine have on prices and Beijing's energy policy? Join us and know more about decarbonization and energy transformation in China.

[Webinar]China in 2022 – Between Shocks and Stimulus

June 29 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

In the first two quarters of this year, China's economy has seen numerous challenges. By far the biggest disruption came from Covid-related lockdowns and restrictions that had a major impact on hundreds of millions of people, and caused city and provincial governments to spend fortunes on quarantines facilities and testing equipment and procedures.

Domestic and foreign companies had to adapt to this economic nightmare and many did so by scaling back investment, postponing decisions and reducing expenses and even headcount.

To assess the current situation and provide an outlook for the remaining months of this year, SwissCham Shanghai is delighted to invite Dr. Ibrahim Chowdhury. He is the Senior Economist for China at the World Bank. In his presentation, Dr. Chowdhury will reflect on recent economic developments, policy responses, the World Bank's short and longer-term outlook and the risks to the outlook.

It is also our pleasure to have with us Professor Huang Yi. He is a Professor of Finance at Fudan University in Shanghai and the Academic Director of the DBA program. Professor Huang will provide a financial overview of China's economy and elaborate on current challenges and future opportunities in the second largest economy in the world.
