Pathpoint Associates Inc., a leading consulting firm focused on Chinese and North American outsourcing and market expansion, has announced its affiliation with the Chinese Minister of Commerce, Chongqing City, Hong Kong Investment Council as part of the team organizing and hosting the 2nd Annual Global Service Summit in Chongqing City on October 29 & 30, 2009. The Summit will provide U.S. business leaders the opportunity to network and meet Government officials, potential customers, partners and suppliers.
"Attending this conference is a great opportunity for firms to check out what China's largest City and most attractive investment region has to offer. Pathpoint will help companies connect with key Government officials and Chinese company executives specific to their China expansion objectives." said Scott Robertson, President of Pathpoint Associates.
Chongqing China is China's largest city with 35 million people with a large diverse consumer and industry base. It is considered by the Government of China as the most important development hub and economic engine for the entire nation over the next decade. The city itself offers highly attractive Government incentives and support programs for North American corporations.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the allure of the Chinese market is powerful for U.S. private-equity firms that have watched dozens of leveraged buyout deals sour over the past year amid turmoil in credit markets and a global recession. By contrast, China's economy is emerging from the global financial crisis in better shape than many had expected, expanding 7.9% in the second quarter. Chongqing hopes to become a private-equity hub.
The two-day strategic conference will include leaders of 50 national-level companies and 390 well established private companies are scheduled to attend the conference. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn firsthand about the strong expertise in manufacturing, transportation, energy, automotive telecommunication, pharmaceuticals the Chongqing region contains.
By attending as a Pathpoint guest, company representatives will be provided many benefits to include a subsidized trip. Pathpoint will schedule private meetings with senior executives from other invited companies as well as with senior officials of Chinese government divisions who can all assist to help harness new opportunity in this growing marketplace.
