China’s growth over the past 10 to 15 years has been phenomenal.
While the developed world was struggling for low single-digit economic growth, China was soaring above 12 per cent back in 2010.
Yet from 2014 it started to slow down, and is now predicted to grow at 6.8 per cent. This might send some analysts scuttling for cover, but for many investors, now is an opportunity to take stock at what the long-term drivers are in the country.
For example, the big spend has been on infrastructure and building up China's cities; with a perceived tailing off in this development, what might be the sectors to focus on over the next five to ten years?
Consumer spending is certainly on the rise, with the fastest-growing middle class in the world seemingly flush with cash to spend on luxury and discretionary goods.
Moreover, improvements in corporate social responsibility, board governance and better consideration for shareholders has meant many mainland-listed Chinese companies are looking more attractive now than they have done.
