It has been almost a year since Evergrande made international headlines as the canary in the coal mine for the over-indebted Chinese real estate market. How has the company fared over the past year? What has been the fallout for the real estate market, the banking system and the broader economy? How has the government responded? What does the future hold?

Get answers and perspectives from a select group of experts on Aug 3 from 9:00 - 11:00 am at the AmCham Shanghai office. The event will also held via zoom.
