(Yicai Global) April 9 -- On Thursday, April 12th, China Institute will bring together top U.S. and Chinese CEOs, government leaders, and experts to discuss changing business relations between the two nations at the 2018 Executive Summit, “U.S.-China Business in the New World Order.”
Historically, business has been the ballast that has anchored the U.S.-China relationship during difficult times, but frustration is rising, and there is growing concern about the overall health of the bilateral relationship. In this complex new era for U.S.-China relations, the Executive Summit will examine challenges in both countries and explore opportunities for American and Chinese businesses to work together.
“The conference takes place at a time of great uncertainty. As the United States promotes its America First policy, and China expands its global influence through One Belt One Road, nationalist and populist sentiments in both countries are on the rise,” said China Institute President James Heimowitz. “It’s increasingly important to find practical ways in which businesses can flourish and work together, underpinning the world’s most important bilateral relationship. This conference aims to add nuance to a conversation that is too often portrayed in black and white terms.”
Speakers at the Summit include:
Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade Gilbert B. Kaplan, on the state of manufacturing in the United States
Henry M. Paulson, Jr., former Secretary of Treasury and Chairman of the Paulson Institute, on how the U.S. and China can tackle global challenges together
Nobel Prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz and former IMF Managing Director John Lipsky on adapting to the New World Order
MIT Professor Huang Yasheng, and Columbia University SIPA Dean Merit Janow on Made in China 2025 and the future of trade
National Governors Association President Scott Pattison, on the states’ view of Chinese investment
In addition, the Summit, which will be at the Harvard Club of New York, will convene three panel discussions:
Chinese Investments in the United States: Opportunities and Challenges
From Green to Gold: Finding Opportunity in China’s Sustainable Future
From Artificial Intelligence to Education and Bio Tech: The Next Big China Opportunities
Other speakers include: Scott Pattison, President of U.S. National Governors Association; Sing Wang, former CEO of TPG China and CEO of CM Seven Star Acquisition Corporation; Winston Ma, former Managing Director of China Investment Corp. and CIO of China Silkroad Investment Capital; Pin NI, President of Wanxiang America Corp.; Daniel Rosen, founder of Rhodium Group; and Ning Yuan, Chairman and President of China Construction America.
China Institute is partnering with the U.S. National Governors Association and China-U.S. Exchange Foundation for this conference. Media partners are Bloomberg, the South China Morning Post, and China Business News (Yicai Global).
