China’s major economic trends have begun to impact far beyond the PRC Mainland. Whether it’s consumers, tourists, investment or competition, Chinese economics have already started to impact Asia and beyond. And we are just at the beginning of this process. In this keynote presentation, Peking University professor Jeffrey Towson will jump forward to the year 2025 and describe how Asia has been transformed by Chinese consumers, competitors and capital. He will detail the longer-term impact of economic forces already underway, such as the rapidly rising number of Chinese consumers (especially Chinese women and millennials); digital transformation of industry; mobile innovation and services; geographically expanding Chinese companies; transformative Chinese investment; and others. China and Asia in 2025 will be remarkably different from what it is today. And this raises the question: Are you and your business going to be ready?
