leave a comment »

HONG KONG /PRNewswire/ — The American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong (AmCham HK) is proud to announce that close to 20 top leaders of multi-billion USD businesses and China experts will be sharing their insights on ‘Managing the Transition: Foreign Business in the New China’ at its annual China Conference, to be held at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong, 8:00 am – 2:30 pm on September 9, 2016 (Friday).

This annual Conference brings together over 200 senior executives from world-class companies and organizations in Hong Kong and the region to discuss and assess trends in China’s economic development and evolving domestic and international business issues.

As China’s economy has evolved into two tracks — declining traditional sectors and booming new sectors, sometimes termed ‘Old China vs New China’ by economists — it has become increasingly important for decision makers to redefine business strategies and at times to embrace new business models to address changes in the market landscape and the impact of new technologies.

This year’s China Conference will feature two keynote addresses and four panels where speakers will discuss the economic transitions taking place in China and related topics. This year’s panel topics are —

Finding Paths in the New China
Collaboration & Competition: New Dynamics in Chinese-Foreign Business Ties
Hong Kong and the Chinese Financial Reforms
Megacities and Regionalization
The Chamber is honored and pleased to have Christopher Johnson, Senior Advisor and Freeman Chair in China Studies at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) as the opening keynote speaker to update the audience his observations on China’s reforms and the post-election outlook for US-China relations. The luncheon keynote speaker will be Dr. Huang Yiping, Professor of Economics at the National School of Development at Peking University and Member of the Monetary Policy Committee of the People’s Bank of China. Dr. Huang will share his deep insights on China’s latest economic growth, as well as the challenges and opportunities amid the economic transitions.

As in previous years, the 2016 China Conference is structured to provide speakers and panelists more time to interact with the audience, rather than lengthy individual presentations, which will provide all conference participants food for thought, practical ideas on business best practices, and time for Q&A and useful networking.
