EVENT DETAILS

AmCham China Conference - Managing in a Maturing China

8:00am Registration/ Coffee/ Sponsors’ Exhibitions
8:20am – 3:30pm Conference(Lunch included, 12:15pm-2:00pm)
 
Hosted by the China Affairs Group
 
AmCham’s annual China Conference is structured to provide practical, near-term insights and assessments for effective business development in Hong Kong and China.

After more than 30 years of rapid growth, China is a maturing economy. The business climate for foreign MNCs and SMEs operating in China – both old timers and new-to-market companies – face worrisome challenges from rising costs coupled with intensifying competition from domestic businesses. Nevertheless, China’s continuing urbanization, emerging middle class, aging population, and recent adjustments in various social policies offer huge potential for business growth. In this changing environment, how can foreign businesses maintain their competitiveness in China and adapt to the new market circumstances to win consumers? In addition, what role can Hong Kong play in this historic transformation of China’s business environment, particularly in services?

 
Gain insights on these and related issues at this exceptional one-day event. Take the opportunity to learn from and interact with senior business executives, policy makers and other experts through two keynote speeches and five highly interactive panels.
 
The conference flyer is attached HERE for registration purposes.

PROGRAM (For speakers' bio, please click on their names)
Opening Keynote (8:40am - 9:25am)
Frank Lavin, CEO and Founder, Export Now; Former Under Secretary for International Trade, U.S. Department of Commerce and Former US Ambassador to Singapore
  
Luncheon Keynote: A Conversation with Jing Ulrich (1:15pm - 2:00pm)
Jing Ulrich, Managing Director and Vice Chairman of Asia Pacific, JPMorgan Chase & Co.
Tara Joseph, Editor-in-Charge, Reuters TV, Asia (Moderator)

Panel I: China’s Mass Urbanization: Get with the Flow, or Fail (9:30am - 10:30am)
China is undergoing an unprecedented urbanization. With more than 700 million people living in the cities already, another 150 million are expected to move from the countryside to cities over the next decade. Along with urbanization, the middle class is booming, the population is aging, and the current social benefit system needs substantial reform. Does Hong Kong have a role to play in these areas? As China tries to manage this historic transformation, what are the opportunities for foreign firms to assist? How can existing foreign businesses maintain their competitiveness in China and adapt to the new market circumstances to win consumers?
 
Peter Levesque, Chief Commercial Officer, Modern Terminals Ltd. (Moderator)
Michael A. Jones, Vice President, Global Business Development, General Electric
Michael Klibaner, Regional Director & Head of Research - Greater China, JLL
Jay Walder, CEO, MTR Corporation


Three Concurrent Breakout Sessions(Panels II – IV, 11:00am-12:15pm. Please refer to booking form for selection):

Panel II: Government Hand-Outs or the Invisible Hand?
For two decades China has been trying to shift from a planned economy to a market economy, but government still plays a major role in the market. The recent CPC Third Plenum announced that market will be the decisive factor in economy. What does that mean for SOEs as well as private and foreign businesses? What are the opportunities and challenges? If the economy slows down, will the government still let the market rule?
 
Robert Grieves, Chairman & CEO, Hamilton Advisors Limited (Moderator)
Brian Murray, Group Chief Economist, Investment Department, AIA Group Limited
William Overholt, President, Fung Global Institute
Yu Liming, Vice President, China Merchants Group

Panel III: Lead or Follow? HK’s Role in PRD Integration
The greater PRD area offers great potential for Hong Kong business development and social/economic integration, especially in services. How can Hong Kong help drive world-class developments in the planned PRD Free Trade Area, maximizing new transportation links between Hong Kong and PRD? Will Hong Kong be a leader or a follower in this regional integration? How can the Hong Kong government and the business community best ensure a strong role for Hong Kong in PRD development and economic maturation? 

Seth Peterson, Partner, Heidrick & Struggles (Moderator)
Colin Browne, VP and Managing Director of Asia Sourcing, VF Asia Ltd.
Ben Simpfendorfer, Founder and Managing Director, Silk Road Associates
Alan Turley, Vice President - International Affairs, APAC, FedEx Express
 
Panel IV: China E-Commerce: the Most Important Business Battleground in the World
China e-commerce is at the intersection of the two most important business trends in the world today: the rise of the Chinese consumer and the rise of e-commerce.  Not only are these two trends shaping China’s economy, China e-commerce is increasingly setting the pace for the world.  The good news is international companies are increasingly able to compete and win in this strategic space.  Find out how your company can develop an effective China e-commerce strategy.
 
Josh Goldman, Global Leader, Digital Shopping Measurement, Nielsen (Moderator)
Sujith Abraham, Group Vice President, Asia Pacific Strategy & Sales Department, Oracle
Frank Lavin, CEO and Founder, Export Now
Thibault Villet, CEO, Glamour Sales China

Panel V: China’s Financial Reforms: Over-hyped or the Real Thing? (2:00pm - 3:15pm)
China appears to be speeding up its financial reforms and new measures are being floated in Qianhai and in the new Shanghai Pilot Free Trade Zone. As China's foreign exchange reserves continue to climb and booming internet financing brings unprecedented competition on traditional financing, are financial reforms over-hyped or will there be real traction? What needs closest watching? What could impact risk assessment most for foreign businesses invested in Mainland China and Hong Kong? 
 
Beth Smits, Head of Public Affairs & Communications, Asia Pacific, SWIFT (Moderator)
Simon Gleave, Regional Head, Financial Services, KPMG
Robert Kung, China Country Executive and Head of Global Client Management, BNY Mellon
Anthony Neoh, Former Chief Advisor, China Securities Regulatory Commission
