In the most recent year, the geopolitical outlook between China and the U.S. has been rapidly shifting. While the financial system has long been developed in America, in what way can China discover its own way of constructing the financial market? To what extent will economic reform affect the current financial market in China and how should the economic reformation promote the formulation of a mature financial system? Challenges and opportunities, there are more to be explored and considered for China.


Real Estate

As China matures from development, Real Estate is no longer the primary driver of economic growth. Over the past several years, a continual housing-prices boom in major Chinese cities led to tightened regulations for fear or bursting the speculated bubble. More recently, the initiation of a trade war between the United States and China created general uncertainty, making Real Estate planning more difficult. This year will be a crucial turning point in the course of the world’s two largest economies as they pave the new global road. How will major developers and investors strategize to face these potential challenges, and to adapt to a changing Real Estate market?



Breakthrough scientific and technological innovations are transforming healthcare around the world. Whereas the US system operates within a stringent regulatory environment, the Chinese system has allowed for a rapid proliferation of human studies, with the potential for accelerated progress, albeit with greater risk. With the vastly different protocols and regulations between China and the US, rather than competition, are there ways to collaborate and share best practices between China and the US?



In recent years, China’s entertainment industry has matured into a competitive environment consisting of entertainment ecosystems, producing a gross annual value of 550 billion RMB. However, the Chinsese entertainment industry continues to face challenges and oppotunities. Can major film production houses in China quickly adapt to a new tax environment? Can industry leaders in the digital entertainment realm explore a more diverse collection of content? Can filmmaking professionals cater to the higher demand of an audience with improving aesthetics?



Artificial intelligence has rapidly shaped the trends in the global economy and revolutionized both existing and emerging industries. Being collaborators and rivals in artificial intelligence, China and the US have respectively shown competitive strengths in different areas: China’s big data network facilitates AI algorithms and its emerging market is more open to trials and errors; The US with its established tech R&D has great potential in implementing high-tech applications. How could we look for new investment opportunities and resolve new challenges?


International Relations:

Through discussion of Belt and Road, US-China trade relations, and international cooperation, this dynamic of international relations between the two nations needs to be explored. How can China and the United States encourage cooperation on the basis of mutual benefit?
