ONE ON ONE: A New Path for Economic Development
Guangshao TuDerek Zhang

After over 30 years of rapid development, China is now the world’s second-largest economy—and home to a number of Fortune Global 500 companies. Faced with a once-in-a-century period of major change, China is shifting its economic growth path from speed-first to quality-first, with the improvement of total factor productivity as its goal. Equipped with advanced ideas and concepts, China is embarking on a new path. As we look into the future, how should we interpret the paths and drivers in China’s new economic model?

ONE ON ONE: The Power of Entrepreneurial Spirit and Culture

“You slept on the floor yesterday, but you could be a big boss today.” This popular saying is often used to describe the entrepreneurial spirit of Zhejiang Province. These entrepreneurs have strived for the best amid the ups and downs of business. As a place devoted to developing its private sector, Zhejiang Province closely connects its economy and culture with entrepreneurial spirit. How can such a approach be shaped so that it can play a larger role in the new era?

ONE ON ONE: The Global Role of Private Enterprises
Wenyin Wang

Against the backdrop of the Belt and Road Initiative, state-owned enterprises in resources and infrastructure have often joined hands when investing in overseas development. It’s far from easy for many private enterprises to make risky overseas mergers and acquistitions, or get deeply involved in global industries. How can growing private enterprises cope with a complicated global market? What can Chinese private enterprises learn from the overseas experience? Join to hear the views and inishgts from the “helmsman” of a Fortune Global 500 company with numerous holdings of overseas mineral resources.

PANEL DISCUSSION: A More Resilient Global Supply Chain
Craig BurchellBo FengClay ChandlerJens Eskelund

The stranding of the Ever Given in the Suez Canal showed how a minor issue can lead to major problems in global supply chains. And yet supply chains are faced with even greater challenges, from the COVID-19 pandemic to mounting geopolitical tensions. In this more complicated era, how can companies build a future-oriented supply chain management system? Is “Just-in-Time” still appropriate? And how can we create a supply chain that can withstand a “black swan” event?

A threat to an industry giant can come from anywhere—and, increasingly, from outside the industry. Disruptive technologies could upend the entire value chain of a given company. Even the disruptors of past decades now need to think about how to ward off potential challengers. When technology evolves at a record pace, how can major companies stay relevant?

19:30-19:45 mRNA Technology and Genes
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought mRNA technology into the public eye. It has become one of the newest buzzword of the capital markets, due to its potential for vaccines and anti-tumor therapies. What are the odds that society can beat COVID-19 using our existing biotechnology? What are the technical and even ethical hurdles that must be overcome? And, given our history of coexisting with and fighting disease over thousands of years, how should humanity examine its relationship with nature?

Why try hard when you can just skate by? This perception about the next generation has sparked debate. For those worrying day-in, day-out about the economy, their family, and their wellbeing, it can feel hopeless not knowing what the future is like.
