Interview with David Dollar and Louis Kuijs on China Quarterly Update, March 2009

Report authors will answer questions about China's economic situation in a live online discussion.

March 26, 2009 12:00am

While China’s real economy has been hit hard by the global crisis, it is still holding up, according to the World Bank’s latest China Quarterly Update. The Update finds that China’s banks have been largely unscathed by the international financial turmoil and that the economy still has plenty of space to implement forceful stimulus measures. However, as the global crisis has intensified, China’s exports have been hit badly and the World Bank is adjusting its projection for China’s GDP growth downward to 6.5 percent in 2009. This also follows the recent downgrading of the World Bank’s projections for global GDP growth and imports in 2009.

Report authors David Dollar, Country Director, and Louis Kuijs, Senior Economist, will answer your questions in a live online discussion on Thursday, March 26 at 9:30 a.m. U.S. Eastern Time (13:30 GMT, 9:30 p.m. Beijing time).

Please submit your questions in advance!
