Add to calendar
China is facing serious challenges. These include slower growth, growing debt and credit burdens, international trade tensions, reduced consumer confidence, and pushback on major initiatives. The Shanghai stock market was the worst performing major world market in 2018, again.
This session will outline some of the challenges that China faces. We then will focus in on two topics: the Greater Bay Area (GBA) Initiative and US-China economic relations. The GBA has become a hot topic among our members and other business executives in Greater China. GBA was the focus of a recent business survey in which 70% of respondents expected their businesses to grow faster in the next three years because of the GBA initiative.
Michael Enright, a Professor of Business Administration at the University of Hong Kong; director of Enright, Scott & Associates consultancy; and, most importantly, a distinguished member of IMA Asia’s Advisory Board will lead the discussion. He has advised numerous major companies, governments, and multilateral organizations on issues of international business strategy, international competitiveness, and economic development. Michael has appeared in more than 40 countries as a keynote speaker, including the slot right after China’s President Hu Jintao at the 2008 APEC CEO Summit. Before relocating to Asia in 1996, he was on the Strategy Faculty at the Harvard Business School.
