LOCATION: Kempinski Hotel, 3rd Floor
The European Union Chamber of Commerce in China is pleased to invite you attend to the European Chamber Annual Conference 2015: The Changing Landscape, on 1st December, 2015.
China’s landscape is changing, not only as a result of the Chinese Government’s ambitious reform agenda but also because of market forces that are rapidly reshaping the economy. In order to place this new era of transformation into context this conference will highlight and explain the major changes that China is currently undergoing, with each conference session focussing on one these key topics: innovation; China’s role in the world; China’s middle class and the rebalancing of its economy; and the financial markets.
Join executives from European and Chinese companies from a diverse range of industries, high-level government officials, distinguished scholars and renowned domestic and international media at this one-day conference. With high-level speakers engaging in in-depth discussions in a dynamic format, we expect more than 200 senior attendees.
