China to Lead the Recovery
Speaking at a Global Investment Outlook Summit conference in Hong Kong, Bill Maldonado, the chief investment officer in Asia-Pacific for HSBC Global said China's reform agenda has reinforced confidence in Asia's biggest economy and now emerging markets are expected to catch-up with stocks in the developed world.
"Valuations and profitability are very good in emerging markets and right now developed markets are looking pretty fully valued," added Maldonado.
"China [will lead a rotation into emerging market stocks] because it's one of the cheapest emerging markets in the world and it's one of the most profitable."
According to a document released by the Communist Party, following a four-day conclave of its top leaders, China said it plans to cut red tape by scrapping residency restrictions in small cities and townships, while also integrating urban and rural social security systems.
This includes the establishment of an exchange market for rural property rights transfers.
The country also pledged to accelerate capital account convertibility and push ahead with an environmental tax.
