Listen: What does China's 'painful adjustment' mean to commodities?

China has just laid out its 13th five-year plan, outlining its key themes and targets. Platts editorial director for China Sebastian Lewis says there were no huge surprises in the official announcements, but the next few years are expected to involve difficult decisions to drive the economy. In this podcast, Sebastian is joined by Paul Gruenwald, Standard & Poor's chief economist in the Asia-Pacific, who talks about the potential impact of China's plans on its economy, and Hongmei Li, Platts senior editor for steel, metals and bulks, who explains how China's new policies could affect sectors like steel and coal.
