To conform with WTO regulations, Beijing has been designing and implementing wide-ranging policies that will alter the country’s economy and operating environment. To discuss the road ahead, Chinese central government officials and senior executives will sit down together in November at the Economist Conferences’ Tenth China Roundtable. Entry into the WTO is presenting significant challenges and opportunities to individual sectors of the Chinese economy and to enterprises—both domestic and foreign-invested—working in them. What is the Chinese central government planning for 2003? Now that the business environment in China is supposed to be "a level playing field", will this immediately have an effect on the preferential treatment previously offered to foreign-invested companies?

Economist Conferences’ Roundtable with the Government of the PRC is a forum for discussion and to explore issues face-to-face with the people who make and implement policies impacting foreign businesses in China. To ensure that the meeting is highly interactive, delegates will have opportunities to put questions and make comments to officials. Senior executives and government officials will discuss the policy outlook for the year 2003, the direction that opening and expansion will take in the coming years, and of the likely effect on their business of Beijing’s plans.

Join other senior multinational executives in Beijing for insight into:

further government plans for stimulating the economy in the face of the global downturn
the progress of government, financial and state-owned enterprise (SOE) reform
the shift in the business environment which will occur as policies implemented after WTO begin to take effect.
Through discussion with peers and Economist Conferences’ in-house analysts, this Roundtable provides a unique opportunity to get to the heart of policy direction in the PRC. This conference is a must for anyone serious about doing business in China today.
