Markets Eye China’s 2015 GDP Target

Investors will keep an ear to the ground this week as China’s policymakers gather in Beijing for the country’s Central Economic Work Conference (CEWC) – a closed-door annual meeting that sets economic priorities for the coming year.

Dates for the meeting have not been officially announced, but the meeting is expected to kick off on Tuesday, according to Ta Kung Pao – a Hong Kong-based newspaper with ties to the mainland government. The meeting usually lasts 2-3 days.

A key issue for the CEWC will be setting next year’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth target, viewed as an important signal of policy intentions.
