Canada wellpositioned to weather volatility in Chinas economy despite deepening ties BoC

The Bank of Canada says the economy is well-positioned to ride out any economic shocks from China —even though the Asian country has become Canada’s second-biggest trading partner.Senior deputy governor Carolyn Wilkins says the bank estimates that if economic growth in China’s economy comes in one percentage point lower than projections — then Canadian growth would slip one-tenth of a percentage point.By comparison, Wilkins says if the same decline happened to the United States, the impact on Canada’s gross domestic product would be six times greater.Global shockwaves from China are only going to get worse, IMF warnsIMF’s Christine Lagarde warns of political risks to global economy amid mediocre growthIn prepared remarks for a speech Tuesday to the Vancouver Board of Trade, Wilkins says the bank has been exploring how Canada might be affected by any shocks that could emerge as China’s maturing economy slows to a more sustainable pace of growth.She also notes that Canadian banks have little direct exposure to China and that any negative reverberations would mostly be felt through a slowdown in trade and weaker commodity prices.Wilkins says the Bank of Canada believes China has the potential to grow at an annual rate of about six per cent over the next 15 years.She says two-way trade between Canada and China has increased more than five-fold over the past 15 years and that about 400 Canadian companies now have footholds there. read more
