FCCC Lunchconference: China's role in a fast changing and uncertain global world11 February 2009, KBC Bank,

Havenlaan 2, 1080 Brussels

On 11 February 2009, the Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce organized the lunch
conference “China’s role in a fast changing and uncertain global world” at the headquarters of
KBC Bank in Brussels.

Mrs Annette Nijs, Executive Director Global Initiative, China Europe International Business 
School, emphasized both the challenges and the opportunities China is facing today. 
She referred to the current situation as being a “Black Swan”, the uncertainty, the
volatility and the abnormality which is going on and the fact you cannot get a grip on anything.
The conference also focused on several aspects controlling Chinese society. First of all, the
Five balances in China: urban vs. rural development; regional development among east,
middle and west; economics vs. social development; human vs. nature; domestic vs. global. 
Mrs Nijs also shared her views on China as a rising economic power and as a rising
geopolitical power.

More than 60 participants attended the conference.
