“We believe that China should be emphasizing the quality of growth more than the quantity of growth. As I said in the introductory remarks, it is very important that the pace of leveraging in China eases, which is something that has already happened in 2016 and 2017, and it is visible in any chart that you may consider. So, the rebalancing of China from investment to consumption, from exports to domestic demand, from credit fueled growth to a sounder basis to growth, more compatible with financial stability. All these elements are crucial.”
