NEXT CHINA: How the Middle Kingdom Will Reshape Your World is a conference that will be held on Wednesday, January 17, 2018, from 8:30am (registration) to 6:15pm at The Times Center in New York City. There will be five forums on Technology, Economy, Healthcare, Politics, and Philanthropy, followed by a live Sinica Podcast recording on “Cracking the China Conundrum.”

The China we knew is gone. China is no longer the land of low-cost jobs and copycat products. From fintech, e-commerce, and stem cell research to AI, EV, on-demand bike rental, and facial recognition convenience stores, China is going to shake your world. The speakers will discuss the most important trends in China’s economy and politics, and highlight business and investment opportunities within technology and healthcare. They will also inform us about the political and economic implications of the 19th Party Congress.

  • Explore where China leads in tech and healthcare
  • Learn how China is banking on EV and AI growth
