The year of 2018 marked the 40th anniversary of China’s “open door” policy that set in motion the economic transformation and globalization strategy of the past years.
In 2014, China became the world’s second largest foreign direct investment source and the world’s largest economy on a purchasing power parity basis. The country is now the world’s largest manufacturer, exporter and holder of foreign exchange reserves.
These factors made way for the implementation of the Belt and Road Initiative, a trillion-dollars megaproject affecting 65 countries, 31% of the global GDP, and 62% of the world’s population, aiming at connecting Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa through trade, investment and infrastructure.
INVEST IN is inviting foreign governments, investment promotion agencies and free zone authorities to take part in the INVEST IN Europe Forum on March 27th & 28th in Shanghai, attended by over 150 senior executives in charge of European outbound investment decisions from China’s most active state-owned enterprises and private companies.
The conference provides a premium platform for business development, information exchange and a much-needed resource for Chinese business leaders looking to expand their operations in Europe. The format of the conference will highlight the current challenges and opportunities in two main European regions: Western Europe countries and Central & Eastern European countries.
InterGest Worldwide is one of the sponsors and Sam Yuan, Director of InterGest China, will be one of the speakers at the event.
