Midwest business owners and leaders will get first-hand advice about the world’s largest economy at University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Global Business Series: China Conference, to be held Oct. 22 at the Fluno Center on the UW-Madison campus.
Participants will learn about challenges and opportunities from Wisconsin businesses that are already succeeding in China. Presenters will discuss resources available from the federal government, the State of Wisconsin, UW-Madison, and local business associations; as well as the current state of doing business in China.
“By 2032, the average Chinese citizen will have the same buying power as the average American,” says Jeffrey S. Russell, dean of Continuing Studies and vice provost for lifelong learning at UW-Madison. “The increasing influence of the Chinese economy is truly remarkable, and worth investigating and understanding.”
Featured speaker Nicholas Lardy will discuss the China economy in relation to business, and participate in a Q&A session. Lardy, a prominent expert on the China economy, earned his bachelor’s degree in economics from UW-Madison. He is currently the Anthony M. Solomon Senior Fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. Previously, he served as the foreign policy studies program senior fellow at Brookings Institution.
Lardy will discuss his new book, Markets Over Mao: The Rise of Private Business in China, at the conference, and at a free public lecture at 4:30 p.m. at Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery.
The China Conference is offered in partnership with UW-Madison China Initiative/Division of International Studies, Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, Madison Region Economic Partnership, and these UW-Madison offices: Continuing Studies, Corporate Relations, and Center for International Business Education and Research.
