China Development Finance Seminar
The Finance for Development Lab is hosting its first conference on Chinese development finance. Scheduled over two days, Monday 27th & Wednesday 29th March, its objective is to build a better understanding of China’s key challenges as a leading provider of finance to developing countries.

DAY 1 will focus on the macroeconomic aspects of Chinese lending.
China is a large creditor, and in some cases, of countries in or at risk of debt distress. How should it tackle the challenges surrounding debtor negotiations and coordination with other creditors? Second, China also holds large excess reserves. It has re-channeled some of its Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) to the IMF, but could it do more, and differently? These two questions will be at the heart of the academic and policy sessions of the day.

DAY 2 will focus on the new objectives of China’s lending operations. The broad question will look at how China is adapting its approach to development finance in a world of increasing debt levels and pressing climate and nature related challenges. The last FOCAC showed a shift from large infrastructure projects to a diversification to new sectors, with an emphasis on sustainability.
