China A-share market to thrive on economic growth and market improvements

China A-shares have had a difficult few months. Investor sentiment was dampened by rocky trade relations with the US and a weaker renminbi amid a slowdown in China’s economic growth. Some investors thought that China would not weather a full-blown trade war with the US well, as it sells more to the US than it purchases. This comes even as the Chinese government is trying to tackle its debt burden in the economy without hurting growth. As a result, Chinese stock markets slipped into bear-market territory since their high in January 2018.1 This caused China to cede its four-year title as the world’s second-largest stock market to Japan.
