J.P. Morgan Welcomes World’s Investment Community to Beijing
Policymakers, corporate leaders and institutional investors to share insights as China deepens its reforms and prepares for the future
J.P. Morgan announced the opening of its 14th annual Global China Summit in Beijing today. Called China in a New World, the two-day event commences on May 8 and brings together policymakers, corporate leaders and investors from across the world. Over 2,200 delegates from 50 countries representing a total of US$20 trillion of assets under management will be in attendance to learn about China’s future amid one of the most dynamic periods in the country’s history.
As China pursues sustainable and more high-quality growth, policymakers are accelerating market reforms by allowing offshore investors greater access to the country’s financial markets as well as cultivating an increasingly favourable and transparent investment environment. The government is also promoting and supporting more technological and industrial innovation, which is providing a strong boost to new-economy companies amid the rise of China’s middle class and the shift to a consumption-driven economic model.
“Our summit is hosted at a critical time when global investors are looking to expand their exposure to China and best position themselves for future opportunities,” says Ms. Jing Ulrich, Managing Director and Vice Chairwoman, J.P. Morgan, Asia Pacific. “The summit is an unique platform for attendees to exchange views and to gain a comprehensive understanding of the evolving geopolitical and economic landscape, as well as China’s latest political, economic and business policies so they can make more informed investment decisions.
“Our flagship event brings together government officials, policymakers, leaders of Chinese and multinational corporations, and the world’s most acclaimed China experts to explore the most important issues facing the global investment community today. They will provide unique insights into China’s markets and development and expert guidance around the accelerating reform program, which is now in its fortieth year,” added Ms. Ulrich.
