Keynote panel: Private equity and economic transition


Having endured several months of severe disruption, China’s economy appears to be returning to a version of normal. Curtailed spending and severed supply chains have inflicted wounds on businesses, which will take time to heal. But there are also longer-term challenges around structural reforms and consumption-led growth. PE has contributed to the country’s economic evolution and will continue to do so – the question is how its role might change. Our panellists offer some answers.

  • How is macroeconomic uncertainty impacting investment?
  • What lessons can be drawn from past difficulties?
  • Are there likely to be more distressed opportunities?
  • What does China-US decoupling mean for private equity?
