â€œWhat we've said to them is, you need to let your currency rise... you're getting wealthier, you're exporting a lot, there should be an adjustment there based on market conditions. They have said 'yes' in theory, but in fact they have not done everything that needs to be done. We are going to continue to insist that on this issue, and on all trade issues between us and China, that it is a two-way street.â€
President Obamaâ€™s Town Hall Meeting, CNBC, September 20th, 2010
China has already overtaken Japan as the world's second-largest economy in a resurgence that is changing everything from the global balance of military and financial power to how cars are designed, and a milestone that would underline a pre-eminence not seen since the 18th century, when the Middle Kingdom last served as Asia's military, technological and cultural power. China is already the biggest exporter, auto buyer and steel producer, and its world-wide influence is growing. On the other hand, some experts point to a property bubble going on that will eventually burst and badly hurt the economy and companies from Detroit auto makers to Brazilian iron miners that depend on spending by China's consumers and corporations.
Golden Networking's China Leaders Forum 2010, "Is the Chinese Dragon Poised for Global Dominance or Economic Implosion?", will examine the challenges facing companies that want to grow and expand their business in China, how to overcome potential obstacles to private equity, venture capital and capital markets investment, how to take advantage and sustain an economy with average annual GDP growth rate of over 9.5%, as well as the threats and opportunities posed by the worldâ€™s biggest economy by 2020, according to the World Bank.
