The opening-up of China and the reforms pursued by its leaders since 1978 have brought about astonishing economic progress. As China increasingly liberalises financially and becomes an increasingly global player in financial markets, what opportunities does this bring up for the rest of the world? Is inward investment into China the new gold rush for ambitious UK companies, and if so, how will the world react?
In her current role, Li Yu drives HSBC GBM’s strategy of gaining access to both inbound and outbound China investments for institutional clients and has been a key contributor to the HSBC Group’s renminbi internationalisation initiatives. She is perfectly placed to advise on the key features of the Chinese economy.
