For decades foreign companies have benefitted from the blind eye which the Chinese Government has turned to common business practices that many relied on to secure contracts; bribes to officials and vacations for business were standard. In the wake of recent scandals, the new Government has its eyes wide open and focused on foreign brands. Generalist directors will be replaced by China specialists; consultants by empowered managers; and luxury holidays with social responsibility programmes. Only then will companies enjoy sweet China dreams.
Forum content
Focusing on proven ways to avoid risk for Chinese companies going global and foreign companies in China, our expert speakers will cover two key areas:
1) Three ways to reduce risk in your China operations: Wang Liwei will highlight how western companies misinterpret Government policy in China 
2) How to set up an international risk and corporate compliance structure: Nils Krause will draw on experience of breaking global pharmaceutical cartels 
Using a combination of standard presentation, debate and drama the Forum will address:
1) Global board composition for the China century
2) What motivates local Chinese officials today
3) New rules in business for the austerity era 
Who should attend?
Companies, NGOs or social entrepreneurs who want to survive under the Xi and Li administration. The Forum is open to all members of BritCham/CBBC free of charge.
