The Greater China Offshore Investment Summit: Managing Uncertainties in a Shifting New World Order – Beijing, China 2019
Following the overwhelming success of our recent Shenzhen seminar, we're proud to announce the second in our 2019 series: The Greater China Offshore Investment Summit: Managing Uncertainties in a Shifting New World Order – Beijing, China 2019. This event is free to attend.
Entering 2019, the world is facing a level of uncertainty it hasn’t seen for decades. The threat of an escalating US-China trade war, rising protectionism and cloudy global macroeconomic outlook have made investors and enterprises more anxious than ever. In this challenging environment, China’s cross-border deal activities are at a critical cross-road.
The Chinese economy is forecasted to become the world’s biggest in 10 to 15 years, providing a solid foundation for a thriving cross-border deal market. However, there are clear signs that these deals are rapidly shifting in deal structure, regulatory compliance and target geographies.
To address all of these challenges and opportunities, we are hosting The Greater China Offshore Investment Summit: Managing Uncertainties in a Shifting New World Order – Beijing, China 2019.
On Monday 25 March 2019 we will bring together Economists, Chinese and international corporate leaders and top dealmakers to discuss the most pressing issues in China’s cross-border deal market and how doing business in China is changing.
Discover opportunities and gain forward-looking insights to support business growth at: The Greater China Offshore Investment Summit: Managing Uncertainties in a Shifting New World Order – Beijing, China 2019.
