China at a Crossroads - Economic and Social Challenges Ahead
Following its miraculous economic development, China has attained middle-income status. However, problems such as the trade war with the United States, serious - although improving - income inequality, non-performing loans, population ageing and a low birth rate, excess savings, and so forth are compelling China to drastically change its economic policies.
In this symposium, leading scholars in these fields will discuss the issues China is facing: trade friction with the United States, social security, Made in China 2025, and the Belt and Road Initiative. We will examine these issues taking their impact on other Asian countries as well as the difficulties Japan faced in its economic development in the past into account.
