About the Event

China's population has fallen for the first time in six decades, official statistics revealed earlier this year. Will this be a long term problem for the world's second-largest economy? Together with economics professor Alessia Amighini we will have a look on the establishment of the one-child policy in China, analysing its impact on demographics and the economic effects that this decision caused. The webinar explores concepts such as the demographic dividend, the age and gender imbalance over time and the decline in fertility.
