    China 2019 outlook: Testing economic and policy resilience


    Key takeaways

    • As concerns grow of a slowing economy, Chinese policymakers will need to act decisively to buffer the slowdown
    • Properly addressing the private sector’s funding needs is vital to demonstrate Beijing’s willingness to continue structural reform and provide a level playing field for all the market participants
    • Unlike in 2008, Beijing has less room for a massive stimulus and fiscal policy will likely be the preferred tool to stabilise growth
