Agatha Kratz heads Rhodium Group’s China corporate advisory team, as well as its research on European Union-China relations and China’s economic statecraft. She contributes to Rhodium's work on China’s global investment, industrial policy and technology aspirations. Agatha is also a non-resident Adjunct Fellow of the Reconnecting Asia Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies under the Simon Chair in Political Economy.
In this episode, Agatha talks about why the reasons for China's economic slowdown go much deeper than zero-COVID lockdowns. She explains how she still manages to get new information on China, with travel to the country being virtually impossible for over 2.5 years now. And she gets into what's off about the German chancellor's visit to Beijing.
