Standing by his forecast

“I’m pretty confident in my estimate that China will surpass the US by 2030”


Justin Lin, former vice-president of the World Bank and now a professor at Peking University, reiterated his estimate this week that the Chinese economy will be bigger than the American one by 2030. “The Russia-Ukraine war will have an impact on China, but it will also affect the US. All countries will see a slower pace of growth,” Lin said during the Two Sessions parliamentary gathering.
