The Roundtable will provide an opportunity for in-depth analysis and discussion with leading industry experts and key decision-makers from around the region on the future of the automotive industry in Asia.

Manufacturers continue to face up to the challenge of repositioning themselves for the future following the dramatic global economic downturn.

Bringing together key decision-makers from the automotive arena, this Roundtable discussion will focus on critical issues such as:

  • Managing capacity utilisation
  • Developing exports
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Retailing and distribution
  • Redefining the aftermarket

The impact of the elimination of trade barriers, import tariffs and local content requirements.

Given the emergence in recent years of China’s role in the automotive sector in Asia, and following China’s accession to WTO, we have chosen to hold this regional event in Shanghai to provide appropriate attention to this important and strategic market.
