    Drawing on his latest book, Cracking the China Conundrum – Why Conventional Economic Wisdom Is Wrong, Yukon Huang will highlight issues faced by the next Party Congress, focusing on options for dealing with China’s debt problems, sustaining rapid growth, curtailing corruption, moderating trade and investment tensions with the West, and coping with pressures for economic liberalization. Many of the mainstream assumptions for addressing these issues are misguided, our speaker argues, and thus the related policy prescriptions are flawed.

He is an advisor to the World Bank, ADB, AIIB and various governments and corporations. His research focuses on China’s economy and its regional and global impact.
