Three generations of Chinese entrepreneurs have driven explosive growth since 1978. In this special session, Dr. Xiang Bing, Founding Dean of CKGSB and Professor of China Business and Globalization, will discuss the new models and strategies that Chinese companies have adopted in the context of globalization. He will also offer an in-depth analysis of China’s paradigm-shifting new business models – their challenges and limitations, the prevailing myths and realities that characterize China, and the resulting implications for cross-cultural leadership. Finally, Dr. Xiang will then look at how this impacts Latin American growth in/with China.
