Dragon Television, a mainstream satellite television station, is holding a three-day event this week called ‘Opening-Up and Reforms, Serial Roundtable Talks about the 20th Anniversary of China’s Accession to the WTO.’ It will be broadcast nationwide during prime time and simultaneously livestreamed to the world through SMG’s Knews news network and financial media channel Yicai Media Group.

They will also discuss how China should actively participate in the global multi-lateral trade system, promote reform of the WTO and put the concept of a Community of Shared Future for Mankind into practice to better address today’s global economic challenges.

Other special guests include Zhang Yuejiao, the first Chinese judge of the WTO, Wei Ya, the online influencer who sold a USD570 million rocket online, Wang Junjin, chairman of Shanghai Juneyao Group, the first company in China to offer private plane charter services and Wu Xiaoru, president of AI giant iFlytek.
