OMFIF Focus Podcast – Globalisation series: ‘China driving globalisation’. Robert Koopman, chief economist at the World Trade Organisation, and Denis Hew, director of the Policy Support Unit at the Asia Pacific Economic Co-operation Secretariat, join OMFIF Chief Economist Danae Kyriakopoulou for a conversation on China’s role in global value chains as it matures and rebalances towards a less export-driven economy. They discuss the impact of digitalisation on trade and of technological advancements on China’s economy, as well as the repercussions for the region and other emerging markets.
