On behalf of the 2013 China Business Conference Committee and the Greater China Society (GCS)at Columbia Business School, we cordially invite you to our 6th Annual China Business Conference – “The Paths to Doubling, China @2020” at Columbia University on Apr 5th (Friday), 2013.
The Annual China Business Conference, sponsored by Columbia Business School and the Greater China Society, is the largest China business conferences on the East Coast organized by business school. It aims to elevate understanding of China’s rapidly growing economy and discuss opportunities and challenges of doing business in and with China. This year, through a series of keynote speeches, panel discussions, and networking events, the Conference will explore the topic of “China’s Paths to a Doubling GDP and Average Income from 2010 to 2020”, and the implications for both Chinese local businesses and multinational companies.
At the recently finished 18th Communist Party Congress, the Chinese leadership put forward ambitious goals to double its GDP and average income of 2010 in 2020. Is the target reasonable? Will there be different growth paths? What are the theoretical and empirical evidences supporting such growth? What are potential implications for different industries? Will social media play a more important role? By drawing experiences from doing business in and with China, the Conference invites prominent speakers from both China and the U.S. to debate on the different interpretations of China’s Paths to Doubling.
We are most honored to have a group of distinguished keynote speakers and panelists, who bring a wealth of experiences and insights to share with our participants. We would also like to express our sincere appreciation for the generous support of our sponsors who have made the conference possible. Finally, we would like to acknowledge the tremendous energy and dedication of our conference team.
We look forward to seeing you at Columbia University!.
