The Chief Economist at Deloitte China, Sitao Xu, considers China’s manufacturing and trade ambitions and it’s more prominent role in the global economy.

With many observers pointing to a significant shift in global economic power from America to China, Xu assesses China’s economic performance today.

He also offers insight into key initiatives such as Made in China 2025, designed to make China a manufacturing powerhouse, and the trillion dollar Belt and Road strategy, aimed at enhancing trade and investment with Africa and Eurasia.

China-US relations, including the potential for a trade war, are also explored, as is Chinese investment in the UK and Europe.
