China is directing funds towards improving quality of life and productivity: business to business services in general, and especially in the sectors of health care, energy, and the environment.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 15, 2011
China is a nation with a top-down economic development regime, and what the country seeks now – clearly spelled out in the 12th Five Year Plan - overlaps nicely with what Greater Boston businesses offer. China Business Toolbox Boston, http://chinabusinesstoolboxboston.eventbrite.com/ June 3 at the Omni Parker House, brings leading experts in the world of US-China relations together with Boston’s own China business community for a full day of executive networking, information, and high level training.
“China has more or less hit the wall with manufacturing-led growth. Beijing is directing funds towards improving quality of life and productivity: business to business services in general, and especially in the sectors of health care, energy, and the environment,” says Janet Carmosky, CEO of The China Business Network, conference organizer. She added that Boston businesses - with a high concentration of life sciences, IT, educational and venture financing – have much to gain by meeting each other, and pooling resources.
To set the tone of the day, Tony Saich, one of the world’s most noted authorities on China’s government and on US-China relations, will deliver the morning keynote on the topic of “Post-Reform China at 30: Forces for Change.” Saich is Daewoo Professor of International Affairs; Director, Ash Institute for Democratic Governance and Innovation; Faculty Chair and Director, China Public Policy Program; Faculty Chair and Director, Asia Programs http://www.hks.harvard.edu/fs/asaich/index.htm.
Technomic Asia, a Tompkins International company (http://www.technomicasia.com), is a market entry and strategy consulting firm based for decades in Shanghai and is the conference’s lead sponsor. United Airlines, http://www.united.com recently merged with Continental, and now offering numerous daily flights from Boston to China, is a supporting sponsor.
Registration opens April 20.
