Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

On behalf of the Organizers, we are glad to invite you to the Financial Innovation & Opening Forum 2018 - 2nd Switzerland-China (Hebei) Innovation Summit.

With best regards,

Your SwissCham Team

PANEL DISCUSSION / 座谈

1. Financial Opening – What are the Growth Market Opportunities and how is Hebei positioning itself as a Center for Financial Innovation?
At the Boao Forum for Asia in Hainan on April 10, President XI Jinping reaffirmed that China will further open up its economy—notably including the financial sector—to foreign players. According to FANG Xinghai, Vice Chairman of the China Securities Regulatory Commission, Chinese finance will increasingly displace Chinese manufacturing as a major driver of shifting global economic patterns. Against this backdrop and China’s growing wealth, XIAO Zhen, President of Swiss Centers China, will shed light on growth market opportunities in China as well as Hebei’s unique role and potential to become a financial innovation powerhouse.

2. Joint Pursuits – What are the Competitive Advantages of Hebei and Swiss Enterprises and how can they capitalize on Growth together?
As financial opening is expected to gather momentum, Hebei has been pressing ahead with a reform agenda and targets to increase mixed ownership and ensure free access to various types of capital. But how can companies pivot in the right direction to capture the resulting growth market opportunities? The answer to that question may lie in the joint pursuit of business objectives. In this session, LIU Wanling, President of the Hebei Reform Strategy Research Committee, will bring out the competitive advantages and distinct strengths of Hebei and Swiss companies and how they could effectively capitalize on growth together.

3. Looking Ahead – Will Value Tailwinds accompany the rapid Growth of Technology Enterprises in Emerging Markets?
On April 21, the National Equities Exchange and Quotations system announced the signing of a memorandum with the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, opening the door for more Mainland enterprises to apply for IPOs. But do the buzz and hype surrounding the listing of innovative and new technology companies go beyond higher valuations and improved liquidity? Will the rapid growth of these firms and their access to larger pools of capital transform the emerging market landscape as we know it and create new value and new value propositions in the future? SHI Yuqiang, Chief Economist of the Hebei Research Committee, explores this further.
