The outbreak and spread of coronavirus since the start of the year has triggered the deepest global slump in decades. It exacerbated the global economic slowdown amid increasing policy uncertainties, trade tensions andgeopolitical instabilities. The World Bank forecasts that the pandemic will cut global GDP by 5.2% in 2020 with projections ofa recession twice as deep as the economic collapse from the 2008 financial crisis. As countries begin the “flattenthe curve" and slow the spread of the disease, they are re-starting their economies. Although the introduction of aggressive stimulus measure has led to signs of recovery, the Chinese economy continues to face multi-faceted pressures this year.
In confronting the lingering external and domestic headwinds, China is actively recalibrating its macroeconomic and financial policies to enhance itsresilience to adverse shocks while achieving sustainable growth and financial stability. At the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption and application of digital technologies in the financial service industry.
At Finance China 2020, we will focus on how China’s financial institutions can turn the crisis into an opportunity, as well as accelerate industry development through further opening up measures as well as the wider and deeperapplication of disruptive and innovative technologies.
Finance China, the leading annual conference, brings together financial institutions, regulators, policy makers, economists and services providers to meet and share professional insights, work on detailed solutions and discuss the latest trends in the industry.
