Watch - Financial de-risking in China. Are they making progress?


Watch the CSIS Freeman Chair in China Studies host a discussion of the credit risks in China.

Insightful discussion on China's mission to bring down leverage in their financial system. Andrew Polk and Gene Ma, share their views on deleveraging in China. Both present great data to show that China is indeed taking steps to take down leverage in the system, and progress is made, but of course several caveats remain.

Andrew Polk, founding partner of Trivium/China, a Beijing-based advisory firm, and Gene Ma, Chief China Economist at the Institute of International Finance, will discuss the origins of China’s debt problem, the challenges Beijing faces in deleveraging the economy, and the effectiveness of its recent policies.
