Chinese Economy

For the last 20 years China has been the fastest growing economy in the world. With an average annual growth rate of 10%, its meteoric rise has been impressive. It is estimated that by 2030 — maybe even earlier — it will overtake the United States as the world´s largest economy.

During its rise, China has managed to lift 500 million people out of poverty, creating an emerging middle class with increasing purchasing power. Its large economy is morphing from a manufacturing economy to a service orientated economy. With a large population and an exploding middle class hungry for new services, there are still plenty of opportunities to be had in China.

Artificial Intelligence: The Future Starts Now
Artificial intelligence is by no means a new concept. The term was first coined nearly 60 years ago. But it continues to give the impression that it’s something which will happen in the future.

China: The New Japan
When Japan’s bubble burst in the 1990s, our economy was saved by China’s economic transformation. Throughout the first decade of the new millennium, Australia was a major beneficiary of China’s grand plan.
