The 2005 China Global Conference aims to provide information and resources on “how to develop business--successfully--in China,” allowing you to take appropriate actions on your China business objectives. Besides being a comprehensive and informative gathering, the event will also provide hands-on strategies for beginners and foreign businesses already operating in China, bringing you further insight on how-to successfully develop your business in today’s China. There will be more than thirty-two speakers present in a total of nine breakout sessions. These sessions will include:

Morrison & Foerster Partner, Kelly C. Crabb, international council to the Beijing Olympic Organizing Committee, will lead the luncheon panel discussion on intellectual property protection related to the highly anticipated 2008 Beijing Olympics with Morrison & Foerster attorney, Robert Cooper. Morrison & Foerster Hong Kong Managing Partner, Robert Woll , will serve as a panelist on the “Entertainment/Media” session. Keynote speaker, Professor Mao Yushi, voted one of the ten most influential economists in China by the International Business Review in November 2004, will be included in some of these sessions to allow the opportunity to interact with the audience. Professor Mao is Chairman of the Board for the Unirule Institute of Economics, an independent economic think tank in China. This contributing architect of China’s new global market was quoted by MSNBC (May 19, 2004) as stating: “The problems of over-spending and excessive bank lending are issues of special privileges, and there is the greater problem of income distribution with the peasants as the neglected segment," suggesting that China will need greater political transparency and reform as a way out. Professor Mao will share similar commentary while bringing a fresh and daring perspective in his discourse on the “Chinese Economy under Globalization – A Retrospect and New Perspective.”
