The event will feature talks from US and Chinese economists, as well as senior figures from the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), the Treasury and ANU.
Former RBA Board member Professor Bob Gregory said Australia’s economy was at risk of becoming collateral damage as the world’s two biggest economies clash.
“Over the last decade-and-a-half a large faction of Australia’s strong economic performance has come from the rapid growth of China, spilling over into demand for Australian exports,” said Professor Gregory of the ANU Research School of Economics.
“Anything that slows China’s economic growth, is bad for Australia.”
The China-US Trade War and Economic Conflict conference is being jointly hosted by the ANU College of Business and Economics, the ANU Research School of Economics and the US based Peterson Institute of International Economics.
