    Haiyan Wang on the latest developments in the US-China trade talks

    Haiyan Wang Keynote Topics

    China is undergoing a transformative phase, marked by changes in its domestic landscape, international role, and relationships with key Western nations. The nation's economic growth is expected to decelerate, yet it is poised to elevate the average citizen's wealth, bringing China closer to high-income country status. An aging population presents both challenges, like increased healthcare costs, and opportunities, such as the adoption of advanced technologies including telehealth and automation. The Chinese government's commitment to sustainability is leading to a greener country through energy conservation and renewable energy initiatives. Furthermore, China's technological advancements, particularly in AI, telecommunications, and aerospace, are significant. However, China must also manage escalating tensions with major Western countries, particularly the USA. In her presentation, Haiyan Wang will delve into these developments and their repercussions for global businesses and investors.

    The current discourse among analysts and media experts, including those from prominent global outlets, is filled with assertions about globalization coming to an end. This perspective is similar to hypothetically concluding in 2000, based on the decline in film camera sales, that photography was dying. Such views overlook the fundamental concept of globalization, which encompasses the interconnectedness of nations through various means like trade in goods and services, capital flows, and data exchange. What we are witnessing, and have been for the past three decades, is a transition from traditional globalization, primarily reliant on the trade of physical goods, to a new era. According to Haiyan Wang, this new era is characterized by the burgeoning influence of 'digital' globalization. This modern form of globalization is not only more potent but is also contributing more significantly to the global GDP compared to its predecessor. Wang further explores the impact of this digital globalization on businesses and investors.

    Asia's ascent to a central position in the global economy is set to be a major transformative force in the 21st century. Currently, Asia contributes approximately 35% to the world's GDP, surpassing the individual shares of both the U.S. and Europe, which are each below a quarter. With Asia's growth rate outpacing these continents, it is projected that by 2030, Asia’s GDP will equal the combined GDPs of the U.S. and Europe. The influence of Asia on the global economic landscape is multifaceted: it's not only emerging as a vast market but is also becoming a pivotal hub for global research and development, a significant source of capital, and a launching pad for new global industry leaders.
