Speaking Events in Shanghai and Beijing
I’m going to be speaking at several events over the next week, to which readers are welcome to register and attend.
On Thursday, August 30, I will giving two talks in Shanghai. Starting at 4:00pm, I’ll be participating in a panel discussion sponsored by the European Union Chamber of Commerce on “China’s Consumption Challenge: Rebalancing China’s Growth.” My fellow panelists will be Fred Hu, former head of Goldman Sachs in China and the founder and chairman of Primavera Capital, and Arthur Kroeber, founder of Dragonomics. The event will take place at the Grand Ballroom of the Le Royal Meridien Hotel, Shanghai, and there is a charge of RMB 400 for members and RMB 500 for non-members.

Starting at 7:30pm that same evening (Thursday, August 30), I will give a separate talk hosted by the Hopkins China Forum and Young China Watchers, on the topic “Is the China Growth Story Finished?” The event will take place at The Wooden Box, 9 Qinghai Lu (just to the south of Nanjing West Road) 青海路 9 号, 近南京西路, 地铁二号线南京西路站. For details and to RSVP, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. I’ll try to cover somewhat different ground than the EU panel.
On Saturday, September 1, I’ll be back in Beijing where at 4:00pm I’ll be talking to the Wharton Club of Beijing in what is being called a “Fireside Chat” on “The Future of China’s Economy in Uncertain Times.” The event will take place at the Fairmont Hotel, 8 Yong An Dong Li, Jian Guo Men Wai Avenue, Chaoyang District, Beijing (tel: +86 10 8511 7777), and is open to non-Wharton alumni.
