Event Description

This last decade has been possibly one of the best periods that Asia has ever economically experienced. According to the World Economic Forum, the Asian middle-class is expected to jump from 500 million people in 2010 to 1.75 billion by 2020, and Asia will add 1.5 times the entire population of the West to the global middle-class population in just one decade.

Of an estimated $30 trillion growth in spending by the middle-class from 2015 to 2030, only $1 trillion is expected to come from today’s Western economies. The remaining expenditure will come from Asia.

Of such economies, China has been at the forefront of growth and is not expected to slow down. According to IMF statistics, in 1980. America’s share of global GDP was 25% power purchasing parity (PPP) in comparison to China at 2.2%. By 2016, America’s global GDP was only 15.5%, and China’s had exponentially risen to almost 18%.
