The impact of the slowdown of the Chinese economy on Australia

Research Essay Topic _The impact of the slowdown of the Chinese economy on Australia.

There are strong indications that the Chinese economy is slowing down after three decades of rapid growth. Its rapid growth transformed not only China’s own economy but also had a huge impact on other economies in Asia and the world. China emerged as the ‘assembly center’ of production networks and has played a major role in the deeper integration of economies in this region.

Clearly a Chinese slowdown will have major impacts on the economies of this region. Also note that the Chinese slowdown is happening at a time when the global economy, including the major OECD economies, is facing difficult times.

You should discuss what may be the impact on important economic variables such as, for example, the country’s real income, its balance of payments position, employment and investment.
