China-US Trade War and Economic Conflict Conference

Presented by ANU College of Business & Economics

PLEASE NOTE VENUE HAS MOVED TO THE AUSTRALIAN CENTRE ON CHINA IN THE WORLD BUILDING.

The trade war between the two largest economies in the world is of great concern to us all and especially so for Australia which is so heavily reliant on Chinese economic growth. How China's development and growth respond to the economic conflict with the US, and how these responses will influence the Australian economy and society present important and intriguing issues for governments, academics and ordinary citizens.

Australian economic growth has gained significantly from Chinese rapid growth. Could there be a substantial slowdown in the coming decades as a result of the trade war?
