15th Annual China Goes Global Conference
"Chinese firms in a new era of globalization"
Presented by the Chinese Globalization Association, in cooperation with emlyon business school
As predicted during last year’s China Goes Global, the responses of firms and governments to the post-pandemic situation continues to evolve in 2021. This year we look at sector specific adjustments, in areas such as accounting, pharmaceuticals, health care and telecommunications, to the changes and uncertainties caused by the global Covid-19 pandemic and the attendant retreats from globalization around the world.
The Chinese Globalization Association would like to thank Prof. William Wei of McEwan for his initiative as a member of this year’s steering committee and Professor William Wang at emlyon business school for their professionalism. In particular, the CGA proffers sincere thanks for the sponsorship of Huawei Canada which makes this year’s on-line conference possible.
