Our view on the sector

China has continued to grow its economy strongly but the rate of growth has slowed in recent years. The economy is going through a transition, shifting from a focus on low-value exports, high investment and infrastructure spending, to domestic consumption and services. Companies are also benefiting from looser regulation, anti-corruption policies, rising consumer spending and improved healthcare and technology. China's a higher-risk emerging market though. The transition from an export-driven to consumption-driven economy will not happen overnight. It could take years to come to fruition and there will be setbacks along the way.
