15th Annual U.S.-China Trade Conference
“Reform after a Half Century of Industrialization”
November 17 and 18, 2014
Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park
This one-and-a-half day, highly condensed, comprehensive conference will bring together 25 practitioners in U.S.-China business to discuss a variety of topics in conducting successful cross-border business. They have lived and worked in both countries, and they regularly travel internationally to identify global trends, ascertain opportunities, and manage business operations. Many of these executives have worked with U.S.-China Chamber of Commerce for over 15 years and are keen to share their experiences and insights at this exceptional event.
After nearly a half century of industrialization, China is again at a crossroad. The growth of two of its major pillars, exports and foreign direct investments (FDI), is stagnant. The real estate market, the main driving force in wealth creation, is experiencing unprecedented challenges. Many large Chinese companies that have a monopolistic position in China are expanding overseas because of the government’s encouragement and a lack of investment opportunities domestically. Many of them are now forced to compete in uncharted territories. With the advent of internet and mobile devices, the aging population, and a new generation that is born in the digital era, China is now a different marketplace from the one that we knew 15 years ago. All of these developments create unknowns, challenges, and opportunities. This conference will strive to isolate these issues and identify the direction for corporations and professionals to stay competitive in the future.
