Over the course of 2010, amidst uneven global economic recovery, China's economy continued to march ahead at more than 9 percent GDP growth. But with rising inflation at home and political pressure hardening against its currency valuation abroad, what would the new year have in store for the world's second largest economy? The National Committee on U.S.-China Relations and the China Center for Economic Research (CCER) jointly-organized the second annual forum at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) featuring prominent Chinese economists, to share their latest research, insights and forecast for 2011.

The 2011 forum featured Qin Xiao, the recently retired chairman of the China Merchants Group, Fan Gang, the director of China's National Economics Research Institute, and Zhu Yunlai (Levin Zhu), the President and CEO of China International Capital Corp. (CICC). Qin, who is now the chairman of the Boyuan Foundation, has been an outspoken advocate of further economic and political reform and Fan is one of China's most authoritative voices on economic policy. They spoke about China's emerging role on the world economic stage. Zhu, who has made CICC the leading advisor of mergers and acquisitions in China, discussed the domestic investment environment in 2011.

CCER economists including Yao Yang, Huang Yiping, Lu Feng, Wu Hou-Mou, Zha Daojiong, Wang Jian-Ye, and Xiao Geng presented their latest forecasts and shared their perspectives on several issues: the trajectory of the yuan-dollar exchange rate, the effectiveness of the Chinese central banks' inflation control measures, the progress of economic rebalancing and China's energy security strategy.

The National Committee is grateful to its corporate partner, the NYSE/EuroNext, for graciously providing the forum venue.
