2016 Wilbur K. Woo Greater China Business Conference

Ten Years On - Innovation, Competition and Collaboration: The Evolving U.S.-China Relationship

For well over a decade, China has been the engine of global growth and cross-border business and investment has surged. But the blistering pace of economic expansion has slowed. Recently, as global markets have fallen, China's economy has started to slow down, impacting industries and businesses, large and small all over the world. However, despite the anemic state of the global economy, companies from mainland China are investing abroad like never before. This is an important moment for one of the world's most vital relationships. Moving the Sino-American relationship further from confrontation and conflict and closer to cooperation and exploration of mutually beneficial growth strategies - to create Sino-American strategic stability that embraces innovation and collaboration across all sectors - will be crucial to shape the path forward.

The tenth anniversary of the Woo Conference will bring together successful U.S. and Chinese leaders, experienced investors and influencers who will share their thoughts on the future of the U.S.-Sino relationship, their perspectives on how far the relationship has come and discuss the opportunities and challenges ahead. Speakers from across a variety of industries and sectors will inspire conversations around innovation, competition and collaboration, and the disruptive forces that will continue to transform the global environment and shape cross-border business and investment between the world's two superpowers.
