For over a generation, China has been implementing daring reforms and advancing firmly towards a modern market economy (mixed economy) based on the aspirations of the growing middle class. While still nominally an “emerging market” of the East, it occupies a special place as a G-2 country since the onset of this Great Recession globally. As we all are in the same "Great Recession" boat of the global economy, this global-based Conference at the heart (Wuhan) of the “Middle Kingdom” of the Chinese nation focuses on collaborative and interactive roles of governments and transnational corporations in the modern social and economic development of China and emerging markets in general. In particular, China's rapid integration into the global economy has created tremendous and ill-understood new opportunities for all the global economy and institutional stakeholders.
Featuring top experts, this conference, jointly organized by the School of Economics and Management, Wuhan University in China, Journal of Transnational Corporations Review and Ottawa United Learning Academy in Canada, offers a unique forum for business, government and academia leaders and analysts to discuss and practically assess the existing opportunities and how to optimally advance them in the near future.
