China in 2022: key themes

As China’s economy is slowing down amid a real estate downturn and its zero Covid tolerance is holding back a consumption recovery, we explore the outlook for the economy and policy next year. We discuss the key themes that we expect to characterize China’s economic developments and policy in 2022, as well as its relations with the rest of the world.

We will be repeating the same webinar to cater for the difference in time zones between APAC, EMEA and the Americas:

  • APAC – Friday 26th November | 11:00 HKT
  • EMEA – Friday 26th November | 11:00 GMT
  • Americas – Friday 26th November | 16:00 EST

Mid-year high convictions in Emerging Markets Assets

The global context is that central banks continue to focus almost entirely on inflation and tight policy will become a downside risk for global and EM activity. We are below consensus on EM growth in 2024. We see impetus running out of steam in most EM regions, and we are generally optimistic on EM disinflation, more so in LatAm than CEE. We remain neutral on EM FX. Fed-related undershoots are balanced by risks of drawdowns driven by spells of wider rate differentials. We see opportunities in local currency debt in LatAm after April’s EM-wide sell-off; and we still find long-term valuation metrics compelling. Mexican and Turkish rates appear attractive. Tight valuations weight on sovereign credit but we see good opportunities, particularly in Colombia and Angola.
