As business commentators eagerly watch events in East Asia unfold, London Business School’s China Week will host two timely conferences.
The first event, hosted by London Business School on 6 November, in conjunction with the Chinese Europe International Business School (CEIBS), is the Changwei Europe Forum 2012. Entitled China’s Economy: Seeking Momentum for New Growth, the invitation-only event features 25 speakers including Xiaoming Liu, China’s Ambassador to the UK; Andrew Scott, Deputy Dean and Professor of Economics, London Business School; Shang Zhong, Minister of Commerce, People’s Republic of China, and Wenjian Fang, Director and CEO, Bank of China.
As China faces tremendous growth uncertainty, the conference poses a number of questions to its expert panellists:
The following Saturday (10 November), London Business School’s student-led China Club hosts its China Business Forum, bringing together Chinese and European business leaders, with cross-border investments and mergers and acquisitions, innovation and sustainable growth, global marketing and brand management under the spotlight.
Global business professionals, including Savio Kwan, London Business School alumnus and non-executive director, Alibaba, and Natalie Massenet, founder and CEO, Net-a-Porter Group, will share a platform with London Business School academics, Dr Linda Yueh, Prof Rajesh Chandy and Dr Alex Song.
In a packed schedule of activities, the China Club will also visit a number of Chinese and Hong Kong businesses in London, including clothing retailer Bosideng and HSBC Bank.
