  Theme: New Opportunities for U.S.-China Economic Cooperation and Development

  China has maintained a rapid GDP growth rate of 9.6% in the first half of 2011, but the inflation rate has been as high as 5.4%. At the same time, under the influence of QE2, the unemployment rate in the U.S. remained high at 9%, and GDP grew only 0.7% in the first half of 2011. China and the U.S. face different problems; yet, rising costs of labor and environmental issues are problems that both Chinese and American industries must confront. Therefore, it is becoming more necessary and important to discuss cooperation between China and the United States and seek a win-win outcome.

  Internationalization presents enormous growth opportunities for U.S. and Chinese businesses. Increasingly, companies are conducting business in emerging markets and establishing strategic relationships with foreign partners.  But how do we navigate this new landscape to maximize benefits while minimizing costs?  How do we reach a consensus on issues related to global economic development? Despite the differences in our cultures and political structures, these issues are significant areas of concern for companies in both the U.S. and China. During this panel we will discuss the challenges and opportunities inherent in the internationalization process as they relate to Chinese and American industries.

  The world is becoming flatter as we speak, and business practices more standardized. Yet, our distinct cultures and histories remain definitive forces – shaping leadership styles, impacting negotiations, and influencing the mentalities of corporations from the top down. Understanding the root of our differences is vital to fostering cooperation in an increasingly interconnected world.  During this session we will discuss these differences and how we can work together to reach common ground.
