FINANCE

For the past decade, low real interest rates, declining productivity growth, and lack of attractive domestic investment opportunities have forced global investors to seek higher returns in less familiar territories.

During this process, emerging markets, specifically in China, have stood out with its rapid developments in almost all areas of the economy.

With continuous regulatory changes, constant technological industry disruptions, and rising valuations across major asset classes, how can investors prepare themselves to capitalize on the new wave of opportunities in China? What role should China play in the next generation of Globalization?

BACK

I.R.

As the world’s two of world’s largest economic entities, how could United States and China avoid the “Thucydides Trap”— recurrent conflicts between the existing and rising powers.

hat can the students of 21st century take away from the significant summits of the two presidents and the other forums related to the improvements of Sino-US relations? What can students contribute to help strengthen the two countries’ relationship?

BACK

TECHNOLOGY

The emergence of Fintech characterized by the convergence of technology and finance has fostered a new wave of transformation in China’s financial market.

The prevalence in mobile payment and P2P private funds backed up by big data analytics have significantly improved the transaction efficiency and refined the business ecosystem.

Witnessing their shrinking market shares, how could traditional financial sectors develop new strategies to accommodate the changes brought by FinTech companies? How will the promising FinTech experimenters utilize the advantages of technology and avoid the imminent risks?

BACK

REAL ESTATES

Recently, the increasing rate of Chinese real estate industry has been declining. While the market started rejuvenating in first-tier metropolis, markets in second or third-tier cities didn’t see as much an improvement. Facing such a stagnant market, how traditional real-estate companies should innovate became a widely-discussed issue.

In this pivotal moment of transformation, how should the traditional real estate industry adjust smoothly into this new era? How should companies adapt based on their unique characteristics instead of blindly following the trend? What attitude and expectations does the government have about this new mode? These topics and questions are what the real estate panel will ponder upon.

BACK

SOCIAL

"Our generation" is not only one that excels in innovation and dares to challenge, but also a generation that assumes social responsibility while practicing sustainable development.

For enterprises, the realization of social value is as important as that of the commercial value. For public welfare institutions, the linkage of social resources is conducive to the improvement and solution of social problems. For government and media, focusing on social issues, promoting social development, and spreading the positive energy of society have always been needed.

Therefore, our panel will invite outstanding entrepreneurs to discuss the status, problems, solutions and future prospects of sustainable development and social responsibility of Chinese enterprises.

BACK

ENTERTAINMENT

As the Chinese entertainment and fashion industries have matured over recent years, talent-centered mode of production and new media-focused means of distribution have and will continue to disrupt Chinese entertainment. In fashion, on the other hand, celebrities have become the “new faces” in fashion shows, advertisements and magazines covers.

In the near future, will we be witnesses to a new age of Chinese entertainment? What would already-established figures say about current Chinese fashion and entertainment? How have industry changes influenced their lines of work? What are their opinions on the impact that an increasing influx of capital has on the industry? Moreover, what do they envision for the future of the industry? These questions will be answered at the Entertainment Panel of the Penn Wharton China Summit.
