Welcome Remarks from Co-Chairs
On behalf of the China Business Conference Committee and the Greater China Society (GCS) at Columbia Business School, we welcome you to our 9th Annual China Business Conference held at Columbia University on Friday, April 1st, 2016. The annual China Business Conference is one of the largest student-led conferences among US business schools exploring current issues pertinent to domestic and multinational firms with current or prospective operations in China. The conference aims to provide a forum to elevate the understanding of China’s rapidly evolving business landscape as well as discuss key opportunities and challenges associated with doing business in and with China.
This year, we come together to unveil China’s next wave of surprises.
2015 is undoubtedly a special year for China, filled with uncertainties and surprises: the economic slowdown and stock-market gyrations keep touching the nerves of the world; the growing tide of Chinese investment into US commercial real estate starts to fall, and the growing middle-class and recent anti-corruption efforts lead to changes in the retail and luxury industry.
