Regulation, ESG and Investment
The story of China over the past few years has been one of slowing growth and an increasingly tightening regulatory environment. The onset of Covid-19 was an obvious driver of the slowdown, but a string of unexpected regulatory moves from policymakers has also contributed to the more challenging business environment and impacted overall market optimism.
For this three-part report, S&P Global and Regulation Asia surveyed awareness and optimism towards the changing regulatory environment, attitudes towards ESG amongst investors and bankers in China, and the outlook for M&A activity.
Regulation Asia hosted a complimentary webinar on 23 August to discuss recent regulatory and ESG policy initiatives in China and how they are impacting the business and investment climate. A recording of the session is available here.
