Opening Ceremony

9:00 - 9:40 London Time / 16:00 - 16:40 Beijing Time

Panel I.

Economy: China and World Economy Outlook

9:40 - 11:05 London Time / 16:40 - 18:05 Beijing Time

2023 continues to be a year of turmoil and change. Factors such as geopolitical tensions are shaping the economy landscape. This year, China is undergoing much-anticipated post-covid recovery as well as a major economic transition, exploring ways to navigate external and domestic challenges and actively promoting multilateralism in a fragmented world. We are excited to welcome seniors from academia, think tanks, and the industry, to share their insights of challenges, opportunities, and solutions ahead for the growth of China and the world. 

Panel II.

Technology and Investment: Survive and Thrive through Uncertainty

11:20 - 12:20 London Time / 18:20 - 19:20 Beijing Time

The uncertainty of macro environment brings new challenges and opportunities to China's technology development and investment. Global growth slowing down, geopolitics intensifying, competition and cooperation between countries in science and technology entering the next stage, regulatory environment changing, how entrepreneurs and investors survive and develop? What changed and unchanged? How to envision the disruptive technologies that are changing the way people live?

Panel III.

Consumers and Retail: Consumer Insight Driven Product Innovation and Value Creation ​

13:20 - 14:50 London Time / 20:20 - 21:50 Beijing Time

Despite the economic headwinds, and the decline in consumer confidence, China’s economy continues to exhibit a certain level of resilience. With the reopening of borders by China, it is essential to understand the changing trends of Chinese consumers to design corporate strategy and market approach accordingly to attract consumers. Consumer companies in China are consequently scrutinizing their strategies. Will the economy—and consumer sentiment—get worse? Or will they improve? If, and when, consumers bounce back, what are their consumption priorities and unmet needs?

Panel VI.

Sustainability: Innovating for Sustainable Growth

15:00 - 16:00 London Time / 22:00 - 23:00 Beijing Time

Sustainability has become an increasingly crucial topic in China as the country strives to balance economic development with environmental protection. The Chinese government and organizations have launched initiatives to promote sustainable development, shift towards renewable energy, and protect ecosystems. How to balance short-term gains and long-term environmental goals? How can businesses leverage innovation to drive sustainable growth?
