As COVID-19 remains a drag on global growth, government policies have been focused on combating the epidemic and restarting economies. Thanks to early and responsive control measures, China has largely contained the outbreak and the economy appears to be recovering. Looking ahead to 2021, how can investors evaluate the long-term impact of a prolonged epidemic on the global economy? What is the outlook for China’s post-virus economic recovery? How will policymakers achieve a sustainable balance between fiscal and monetary policies? Zhu Min, former Vice President of the IMF, will share his insights on the prospects for China’s economy and policy action in 2021.
