    12:30 PM – 1:45 PM

    With Chinese investment increasing dramatically in the US and other overseas markets, the time is now to understand what the potential impact will be on businesses, consumers and the host governments where they invest. In this lecture Joel Backaler, Associate Vice President at Frontier Strategy Group and author of ‘China Goes West: Everything You Need to Know About Chinese Companies Going Global’, will address the following key issues we should be aware of when assessing the impact of Chinese firms playing an increasing role in the global economy: What are the motivations for Chinese companies to expand globally?; What forms of investment predominate in Chinese firms’ overseas expansion?; What are the potential concerns that we should consider?; What are the potential benefits?; How can business and government respond to maximize the benefits, while mitigating the risks? Mr Joel Backaler is Associate Vice President at Frontier Strategy Group, an award-winning business blogger, a contributing columnist for Forbes, and a member of the National Committee on United States–China Relations. His work focuses on bridging the gap between Western and Chinese businesses, serving as an intermediary and advisor to executive leaders on both sides.
