Auditorium, Room 1200

The upheaval in China’s stock markets over the summer has left many wondering what is happening in the world’s most important growth engine. Are we witnessing the beginning of an economic crisis in China, or at least a dramatic slowdown after decades of massive growth? If so, what is causing it? What are the domestic economic, social and political implications? And what does a slowdown in China mean for the U.S. economy as a whole and the Southern Californian economy in particular?

The UCI Long U.S.-China Institute brings together a panel of leading experts from academic and business circles to discuss these questions and provide a state-of-the-art understanding of the Chinese economy and the domestic and international impact of recent developments relating to it.
