China Economic Outlook

To give us the traditional economic outlook for China, we are happy to invite Peter Ling-Vannerus, SEB Beijing, for yet another highly appreciated presentation on the Chinese economy ahead including the economic drivers for China in 2024.

It’s been a bumpy year for China recovering from the effects of the zero tolerance during the pandemic, a real estate sector in sharp decline, consumer spending at a low and with a number of adjustments of the GDP forecasts for 2023. IMF adjusted it’s forecast for the Chinese GDP in November to grow to 5,4% in 2023 and warns of slower growth next year, projecting that China’s GDP will expand by 4.6% in 2024 due to weakness in the property sector and subdued export demand.

  • What can we then expect for 2024 when entering the Year of the Dragon?
  • Will the real estate sector recover and has it bottomed?
  • What will be the drivers in the Chinese economy?
  • What effect will de-coupling have on the growth figures?
  • Will the government provide any support to boost the economy?
  • What does the EU-China relationship look like now and going forward?


Peter Ling-Vannerus, Chief Representative, SEB Beijing, will guide us through a macro economic update including structural changes, challenges and opportunities on the Chinese market awaiting Swedish companies. 

Peter Ling-Vannerus was Gobal Head, Subsidiary Financing, at SEB Head Quarters in Stockholm before moving to Beijing in 2016 and have previously worked as the head of SEB Branch, France as well as head of the SEB office in Brazil and Board member of the Brazilian Investment Bank, Banco Mercantil Finasa. Peter has a long experience of working with emerging markets within all product areas and started his career in Peru working with the re-scheduling of the Peruvian debt.
