How to strengthen working-level ties

NEXTChina will be a day of learning, engaging, and connecting with China-focused professionals about the ties that bind and the trends that define the relationship between China, the U.S., and the world.

The morning will be comprised of workshops focused on specific industries and led by best-in-class China experts.

The afternoon will feature panel discussions and keynote talks with decision makers and leaders.

What you’ll

take away

  • Actionable strategies for the next billion-dollar opportunities in China

 

  • Insider knowledge of the big changes taking place in China

 

    • Foreign investment law changes
    • Foreign non-profit law changes
    • Trade war outcomes
  • Access to world-class experts in small groups of peers

 

  • A network of visionaries, decision makers, and working-level experts

 

  • A pipeline of clients, new hires, or peers to 10x your China opportunities

Worst case scenario is that China’s economy only doubles in size the next 15 years.

 

Don’t miss it.
