Luncheon Keynote: Clayton Dube "China: Doors Opening or Closing? What China’s New Normal Means for the Chinese and Americans"
Clayton Dube gives a luncheon keynote at the 3rd International Symposium on Language for Specific Purposes conference.
The U.S. and Chinese economies are joined at the hip. Worries about China’s economy are driving gyrations in our own markets, in commodity prices, and in geopolitical calculations. Is this nervousness warranted? Will China continue to be open to trade and investment from abroad? Will Chinese investment in the U.S. continue to grow? What do China’s leaders mean when they talk about forging a “new normal” for their economy? Why are young people at the center of Chinese hopes and fears? How are these economic shifts affecting lives on both sides of the Pacific? These are some of the questions we’ll explore.
