On Monday 11 May, AustCham Beijing held a Webinar with ANZ Chief Economist Richard Yetsenga.
Mr Yetsenga noted that this has been a very challenging period, but believes we are now past the most acute stage of the crisis with overall new COVID-19 cases broadly flat since April. Mr Yetsenga likened the comeback to “untying a knot” , suggesting that there will be some “tightening” and “loosening” as each country calibrates sectors of the economy for their own local conditions and this process is likely to take time.

Mr. Yetsenga further noted that China’s economy has made substaintial steps towards achieving back pre COVID-19 levels in the domestically focused sectors of the economy, with property sales and car sales coming back strongly. Also noting coal consumption is now back to 2019 levels.
