Welcome to the Greater China Business Conference 2015

China’s Next Chapter: Future Growth Engine

May 9th, 2015
Kellogg School of Management, Evanston, Illinois

China has witnessed incredible economic development since China opened its doors to the world thirty-six years ago. But China’s growth is facing fierce challenges from multiple angles and China’s annual GDP growth will inevitably slow down to less than 8%. How China solves the issues and fuels its future growth will lay the foundation of China’s next chapter and change the world.

GCBC will feature leading professional and academic experts with keynote presentations and discussion panels:

Panel 1: Technology and innovation - China is transitioning from the “world’s factory” to an innovation lab. What exactly is encouraging this innovation ecosystem? What should we expect to see from this innovation lab? What are the challenges in China’s quest to lead the world in innovation?

Panel 2: Retail and Consumer Market - China is expected to surpass the United States to become the world’s largest consumer market within five years, presenting huge opportunities for consumer goods and retail sectors. How can firms manage national expansion? How can firms handle operations complexity and achieve omni-channel success?

Panel 3: Sustainability - The extensive development model of China’s economy has led to inefficient use of natural resources and environment deterioration. What efforts have the Chinese government taken to change the development model? What is the implication for firms in China?

China’s Next Chapter – Future Growth Engine will take place on May 9, 2015 at Kellogg School of Management in Evanston, Illinois. It will also feature a webinar platform to help connect with remote audience members. Join us to understand more about China's growth vision and strategy and to connect with other professionals helping to shape the country's future.
