Chinese market prospect:
The Chinese Communist Party is preparing for a major reshuffle in 2017 that we expect to strengthen the president, Xi Jinping. The near-term economic outlook has brightened: real GDP is forecast to grow by 6.4% in 2017. However, we then anticipate a period of slow growth in 2018-19, when we expect the authorities to take steps to tame an unsustainable build-up in debt. Growth will slow to 4.3% a year on average in those years, but some recovery is likely subsequently as investment rebounds. (Source: The Economist Intelligence Unit 2017)
