China Shifts Course on Financial Markets

NEW YORK, August 23, 2017 — According to a study by Citigroup Inc., China is shifting its approach to financial markets, which is projected to result in faster economic growth.

China’s efforts to internationalize its currency faced major obstacles back in 2015. Currently, policy makers are changing course, focusing on development of domestic financial markets.

Bloomberg reported that China’s nominal GDP, which is unadjusted for inflation, is projected reach $28 trillion by 2025 in Citigroup’s study. This is compared with $26 trillion for the U.S.-based on anticipated growth rates and a gradual appreciation of the yuan to 5 per dollar from 6.8 now. Stocks considered: Chineseinvestors.com, Inc. (OTC: CIIX), China Finance Online Co. Limited (NASDAQ: JRJC), Jumei International Holding Limited (NYSE: JMEI), Weibo Corporation (NASDAQ: WB), Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE: BABA).
