About this event

New business models and opportunities arising from China’s evolving business landscape

China is changing at an unprecedented speed and scale, resulting in a complex business landscape. To help you navigate this dynamic market, we are delighted to invite you to the launch of CKGSB’s latest book, China in Transition: 10 Case Studies of Chinese Companies Breaking the Mold. The event will feature several of CKGSB’s seasoned professors and leading companies addressed in the book.

You will hear about China’s economic outlook and how private Chinese enterprises are changing to sustain growth. You will learn about how companies like Tujia—‘China’s Airbnb’—is revolutionizing shared accommodation by innovating for the Chinese market, how traditional companies like Haier are upgrading through digital transformation, how China’s philanthropy is evolving by adapting a business mindset and how multinationals shall adapt their China strategy to the country’s changing landscape. Join us for an eye-opening discussion on how Chinese companies are transforming and the corresponding shifting role and strategy of multinationals in China.

Participants: 130-160 business professionals and executives, journalists, academics, and publishers
