Welcome to join us for this follow-up webinar on China post Covid-19 with an outlook for 2021. Will the strong growth and recovery continue? What are the consequences of decoupling?

China is the world’s 2nd largest market for Green Bonds. This market is growing and becoming more sophisticated and the development in China will also be discussed during the webinar.

China’s factories are recovering at a fast speed as exports are growing at phenomenal rates and consumer demand recovers. In November, China’s factory output grew at the fastest pace in 20 months as demand for the country’s manufactured goods increased with restrictions lifted in major trading partners. China has staged an impressive recovery from COVID-19, mainly driven by robust exports as well as a strong domestic e-commerce market. What lies ahead for 2021?

Peter Ling-Vannerus, Chief Representative, SEB Beijing, will guide us through a macro economic update of China’s post Covid-19 landscape including structural changes, challenges and opportunities on the Chinese market awaiting Swedish companies. Peter will also give us an introduction to Green Bonds in China, a growing market with challenges and opportunities for issuers and investors, which is becoming even more important with President Xi’s commitment to Carbon Neutrality by 2060.

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.
