Experts to Discuss China’s Economy at Bloomberg Event

October 20, 2011

Hong Kong — While the recent slowdown in the pace of China’s
economic growth makes headlines, Bloomberg LINK will convene
economists, investors, and academics to discuss China’s
financial markets and debate the moves that the government is
making to manage the country’s fiscal expansion.

The Bloomberg China Conference, to be held on October 25th at
The Hong Kong Jockey Club, will explore how China can balance
growth and inflation, the yuan’s march to convertibility, the
emerging dim-sum bond market and the new leadership at the helm
of China’s financial regulatory bodies. Speakers will also bet
on the next hot spots in the country’s real estate market and
explore investment opportunities as China’s appetite for
commodities grows.

“While the rate of China’s expansion decreased in the third
quarter, the pace remains five times that of the U.S., so the
administration is facing a number of challenges that come along
with accelerated economic growth,” said Robert Bierman, head of
Bloomberg LINK. “We’re looking forward to bringing leading
‘China-watchers’ together to provide insight into how investors
are reacting to all of these challenges, and what kind of market
responses we’ll see as a result.”

Key speakers include:

-Ronald Arculli, Chairman, Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing
Limited; Convenor of the Non-Official Members of the Executive
Council, HKSAR

-Ronnie C. Chan, Chairman, Hang Lung Group Limited & Hang Lung
Properties Limited

-Jimmy Chan, Chief Executive Officer, Value Partners Group

-Paul Mackel, Managing Director – Head of Asian Currency
Research, HSBC

-Todd Martin, Asia Equity Strategist, Société Générale
Mingchun Sun, Chief Economist for Greater China and Head of

-Jing Ulrich, Managing Director & Chairman of Global Markets,
China, J.P. Morgan

-Steve Wang, Executive Director and Head of Fixed-Income
Research, Bank of China International (BOCI)
