In America, there are a lot of misconceptions about many aspects of Chinese culture and economic policy. These have become especially apparent over the last two years during the Covid-19 pandemic. However, many investors are curious about the opportunities to be found in China’s fast-growing market but while factors like the country’s political structure, ongoing trade wars with the US, and regulatory differences shouldn’t deter investment, it is important to understand the risks involved when it comes to investing in China.
Here to give us an insider’s perspective is Andy Rothman, an investment strategist at Matthews Asia, the largest dedicated active investor in Asia and China in the United States. Before heading to Matthews, Andy spent more than 20 years living and working in China, first as a student, then as an American diplomat. At Matthews, Andy is primarily responsible for developing research focused on China’s economic and political developments.
In this episode, Andy discusses the major shifts that have been happening in the Chinese economy both pre- and post-pandemic, the changing role of private companies in China, and his take on US/China economic policy and regulation.
