Business luncheon, Tuesday February 16, 2010 – Balcony room, Hilton hotel
Since the Global Financial Crisis has made its impact felt on the Chinese economy, Beijing has been proactive in sending business missions abroad, simplifying procedures for offshore foreign investment and introducing a host of new regulations in an effort to both sustain local business and move Chinese industry up the value chain. Why has the Chinese Government undertaken such initiatives and what is the plan? What are the dynamics and challenges? Are the results in line with expectations? Are we seeing the development of China Outbound M&A for the first time and is it here to stay?
For most companies reviewing their international business development strategy, understanding how to respond to Chinese foreign direct investment is now a priority and the answers to the questions posed above should feature in Board discussions as a basis to deciding how to deal with “the China Factor”.
