Focusing on the U.S.-China economic and financial outlook
NEW YORK, May 9, 2014 - American and Chinese business leaders will join forces on Friday, May 9 to present the 2014 Peking University Guanghua School of Management U.S.-China Business Forum “G2 Economies, Finance and Business Opportunities” from 2 to 5 p.m. at The Harvard Club of New York City, 27 W. 44th St., New York, NY.
More than 100 business professionals from both countries will convene to discuss the unique relationship their countries share and what lies ahead for these two powerhouses. In order to reap the benefits of a strong U.S.-China economic relationship, both countries must resolve the challenges facing them. Although China has experienced tremendous growth over recent decades, experts predict that what fueled that growth over the years will not be what sustains it. By working together, both countries can obtain the common goal of enhanced economic relations.
Dr. Robert D. Hormats, the former U.S. Under Secretary of State for Economic, Business, and Agricultural Affairs, previously stated, “I see our two countries on the verge of a new era in our bilateral economic relationship – one where we can explore new possibilities for ‘mutual benefit’ and ‘win-win cooperation.’”Hormats will speak at the forum on the shaping of the global economy and what lies ahead for the U.S.-China relationship.
As the Guanghua School of Management makes its debut in the United States, the school’s leading researchers, as well as Hormats, will present their groundbreaking findings on the U.S.-China economic outlook.
Dr. Hongbin Cai, Professor of Economics and Dean of Guanghua School of Management, Peking University, will present “The Myth of the Imbalance of the Chinese Economy.” Cai, who has published academic papers in economics and finance in various international journals, will discuss the underlying causes for the potential Chinese economic downturn.
Business leaders and political figures will be challenged to identify the struggles hindering the Chinese economy and how those may affect the relationship between the U.S. and Chinese financial markets.
The session, “A Tale of Two Finances: An Outdated Financial System vs. a New Finance,” led by Dr. Qiao Liu, Professor of Finance and Assistant Dean of Guanghua School of Management, Peking University, will address the pitfalls of the current financial system and implications for the future financial landscape.
