China reaches mid-2019 with weaker than expected growth and worse than expected relations with the US. It is likely that growth plans and operating strategies will need to change. How much to change will be the focus of debate in our June quarter update.

To lay the ground for that debate, Richard Martin, Managing Director, IMA Asia will examine the areas where demand is wilting and where stimulus is rising. Together, they’ll shift the pattern of growth and risk across the China economy. Richard will also update the outlook for a stalled, if not deteriorating, US-China relationship. Our goal in Q2 will be to exchange views across the Forum on what’s changing in the outlook and what to do about it.

CHINA CEO FORUM – GUEST SPEAKERS

James McGregor, Chairman, Greater China, APCO Worldwide will speak at the China CEO Forum on US-China trade relations. The US-China trade battle is the opening skirmish in a battle for the commanding heights of the future technology world. While tariffs and trade deficits crowd the headlines, the core conflict is about dominating the most important technologies of tomorrow. Underlying this struggle is the incompatible political DNA of the two countries as well as their mismatched economic systems. What is clear is that this will be a protracted battle. What is less clear is how countries and companies can navigate their way in this political and economic minefield.

To dive deeper into the technology discussion, we have invited Mark Greeven, Professor of Innovation and Strategy, IMD Business School to provide China CEO Forum members with an overview of China’s technology play and classify different types of emerging innovators. These companies that are throwing down the gauntlet to Western multinationals for an epic competitive battle in the coming decade. Mark explores novel ways of accelerating corporate innovation, designing business ecosystems by collaborating with innovative Chinese companies and multinationals. Mark is co-author of ‘Pioneers, Hidden Champions, Changemakers and Underdogs’ and ‘Business Ecosystems in China: Alibaba and Competing Baidu, Tencent, Xiaomi and LeEco’.

All of this should set the stage for a lively debate at the China CEO Forum on the local innovation strategies of multinational companies to carve out a future in this unsettled new global reality.
