Summary

New Zealand businessman David Mahon will provide an update – informed by his years living, investing and advising foreign corporates in China – on the recent deleveraging of the Chinese economy, political shifts leading up to this year's Party Congress, and regional geopolitics both influencing and being influenced by China's evolution. David will make particular reference to the impact of recently heightened tensions in the Korean Peninsula, and argue that only a renewed commitment to regional partnership based on trade and aid will achieve a sustainable de-escalation of tensions.
