Pathways to sustainable growth after the crisis: the role of Asia

Growth in Asia is leading the global economy out of the crisis, while the UK and other western powers struggle with deficits and austerity. Yet, many hold Asia’s export-oriented growth model responsible for the global economic imbalances that played a role in the financial crisis. While all agree on the need to rebalance the global economy, there is no consensus on the path forward. Is political deadlock inevitable or are changes taking place in Asia and the wider world that could lead to a more sustainable path to growth? 

Professor Andre Sapir, renowned both for his academic work and policy expertise on economic globalisation and its impacts, will lead an interactive seminar on how to achieve more sustainable growth after the crisis and the role of Asia in this context.

Dr Yueh, Bloomberg TV's economic correspondent, will draw on her in-depth knowledge of China’s economic policies and priorities to comment on their likely impact on the global economic recovery.

Presentation: Andre Sapir, Professor of Economics at Université Libre de Bruxelles

Respondent: Linda Yueh, Fellow in Economics and Director of the China Growth Centre at Oxford University

Chair: Roger Liddle, Chair, Policy Network

This seminar is part of the Foresight project, organised by the Alfred Herrhausen Society, in partnership with Policy Network
