Podcast: China’s slow road to recovery

China was the first country hit by the coronavirus and has since largely managed to bring the outbreak under control. The Chinese economy has thus become a bellwether for the rest of the world. So how is the economic recovery progressing in China post-lockdown? Nordea Chief Asia Analyst Amy Yuan Zhuang delves into the subject in the latest instalment of our Economic Outlook podcast series.
