2021 has been an eventful year for China and the world, to say the least. Bruegel has been following China's economic developments with our monthly China Newsletter Zhonghua Mundus, and in this last episode of the year, we feel the need to provide a bigger picture of its macroeconomic outlook.

Sitting in Shanghai, J.P. Morgan’s Chief China Economist Haibin Zhu joins Giuseppe Porcaro and Alicia García-Herrero for a summary of China’s economic activities in the past year and what to expect in the future, namely the impacts of ‘common prospective’ narrative, market regulations, pandemic restrictions and decarbonisation.
