Briefing: 'China's 19th Party Congress: What Does This Mean for European Companies in China and Globally?'

27 November 2017 at 15h30 - Brussels
 
The Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce and The Conference Board have the pleasure to invite you to the briefing: 'China's 19th Party Congress: What Does This Mean for European Companies in China and Globally?'.
 
This briefing will take place at The Conference Board, 178 Chaussee de la Hulpe on Monday 27 November 2017 at 15h30 in Brussels.
 
A number of geo-political developments over the last 12-18 months represent potential paradigm shifts in global trade and investment norms, not least Xi Jinping’s “New Era” proclaimed during the recently concluded 19th Party Congress in Beijing. The New Era portends new rules of play for firms in China, and a much more muscular ascent of China onto the world economic stage.
 
This exclusive event will focus on:
 
  • The 19th Party Congress – Key Readouts and Prognostications for multinational business
The Congress ratified key changes to the Constitution of the Communist Party of China and approved the incorporation of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era into the constitution. Xi Jinping is the first leader since Deng Xiaoping to append his name into party ideology. Xi Jinping is in a better position to push forward his ambitious national “rejuvenation” and development agenda, which does not, we assert, include a more expanded role for markets to play a decisive role in China’s economy. European companies in China need a New Playbook for this New Era, and the Conference Board will help assessing what companies could expect.
 
  • President Trump one year on, implications on global trade and economy
How will the role of the US in the global economy change, and can we identify the impacts of President Trump’s presidency?
 
The signing of $250 billion in trade deals when Donald Trump met Xi Jinping in China was applauded but will the Trump administration be able to use the momentum to tackle the issue of market access and unlevel competitive conditions for multinational firms in China.
 
  • Impact of trade and global value chain transitions for European companies
Will faster global growth help global trade to recover, and how will it affect global value chains? How will China’s Belt and Road initiative potentially change the dimensions of competitiveness. 
 
How will Europe respond to these and other important global influences?
 

 

 
The briefing will be conducted by Mr Bart van Ark, Chief Economist of The Conference Board, and Mr David Hoffman, Head of Asia Pacific and The China Center of the Conference Board.
