6 members of our emerging market equities team was on the ground in India recently to understand the slowdown in India. More
- China's government is ready to respond if the potential negative impact of trade friction causes an economic slowdown
- The US appears to be asking for a roll back of the China 2025 program but this is part of their national ambition to be an advanced country in certain areas by 2025
- Market confidence is the lowest in 4 years. This is due to:
1. Trade issue; and
2. Government's efforts to address the shadow banking system
The Chinese government is ready to respond. They are extremely pragmatic and will be data dependent. If they see further deceleration, then we would expect further stimulus and easing as well.
