Corporation and Reform
Description:
As China’s investment-driven economic growth slows down, its state-owned enterprises are looking towards innovation and reform as potential new engines under the economic New Normal. A key component of the reform of large state-owned enterprises (SOE) is to transform them from administrative-oriented entities to market-oriented entities, to reignite growth, improve efficiency of these large corporations. At the same time, private enterprises from various sectors are embracing innovation, as exemplified by their transition towards more Internet-based businesses and the increasing emphasis on research and development of new technology. These strategies are aimed at increasing the core competitiveness of Chinese firms and powering the economic development in China. The innovation and reform of SOE and private enterprises will certainly be among the top priorities under the economic New Normal in China. At this forum, we will discuss how SOEs and private enterprises can find a new balance under the economic New Normal in China.

Description:
In the past few decades, the Chinese IT industry has rapidly developed into an integral component of the nation’s economy. With the increasing accessibility of internet services and the surge of smartphone usage, the Chinese public are able to enjoy new services and capabilities that merge mobile network with traditional industries in a myriad of forms—from Alipay, a secure third-party online payment platform, to WeChat, a messaging app that blends in elements of social media and e-commerce. Under the backdrop of a booming IT industry, China’s enthusiasm for technology-based entrepreneurship has never been higher and foreign and domestic venture capitalists alike are busy hunting for the next Alibaba. Our forum aims to foster a deeper understanding of the IT industry in China, to evaluate the mobile Internet’s positive impact on economy and to seek answer to the hottest questions in the field: the structure and the development of the internet industry, the merge between traditional industry and the internet industry, the trend in internet entrepreneurship, and the application of big data in this field.

Description:
With the boom and bust in China’s equity market and the extreme measures that government took to stem equity rout, China’s capital market draws the attention from around the globe. The recent dramatic and seemingly desperate moves by the Chinese Central Bank to halt the stock plunge is a major setback for the supposedly under-control process of liberalizing the nation’s capital account, despite other recent promising progress such as the introduction of Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect and the inclusion of Renminbi to the SDR basket. Can the Chinese government stop the equity roller coaster from continuing to crashing? What are the long-term effects of these extreme measures on the China’s plan to reorient the economy away from government-led investment and towards domestic consumption? Would a prolonged equity slide trigger a systemic crisis in China’s financial sector? Has the global investor lost faith in the once omnipotent “Chinese model”?
Media and Entertainment
Description:
2015 has been one of the best years in the history of China’s entertainment industry: the central government declared that it aims to bring the value of the entertainment industry to 5% of GDP; corporate giants such as Alibaba Group and Wanda Group have made strategic investments in the entertainment industry one after another to gain a foothold in this burgeoning industry。 Developing the entertainment industry seems set to be part of the New Normal of China’s economic development. Yet underneath the flourishing market teeming with hot money, there are many key questions that both insiders and outsiders are struggling to find answers for: Why is China’s entertainment industry attracting attention from China’s business tycoons? With cross-border collaboration underway, how will the globalization of China’s entertainment industry unfold? Against the backdrop of such strong demand for entertainment products and escalating costs of producing movies, how will the quality of China’s entertainment products be guaranteed? This forum will focus on navigating the path of development of China’s entertainment industry under its New Normal.

Description:
China, as a cultural country with a long history has formed a vast and deep-rooted Chinese cultural circle worldwide. As time went by, after several years of thriving and migration, the Chinese people have been all over each corner of the world. Each Chinese as a carrier is entrusted with the mission of the heritage and continuity the Chinese culture both at home and abroad. The revitalization of literature and art is inextricably linked with the development of the country since ancient times. The increasingly powerful China need to take the flourish of cultural industry as a reliable pillar, as well as take the Wharton cultural sub-forum as a platform for cultural exchanging to work on promoting the development of China’s cultural industry, and discussing issues in art, music, film and other related areas in depth.
