  Building on the very successful inaugural meeting of the China Outbound Forum the second edition of the Forum will focus on the new developments that are accelerating and expanding the trend of globalization of Chinese companies – many of them now aspiring to international leadership position in their sectors and upping their game to achieve this objective.
  The One road one belt initiative launched by President Xi jinping in 2013 and revved up since the beginning of the year is bound to add breadth and momentum to the outbound drive. The One Road part is centered on the Asia and Eurasian landmass, while the one belt element looks at creating a 21st century maritime Silk Road, encompassing the South China Sea, the South Pacific and the Indian Ocean. Designed to provide a second breath to China's economic development, this initiative is complemented by the creation of a US$ 40 billion Silk Road infrastructure fund and the creation of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. It has the potential to unleash gigantic new opportunities especially in the domain of infrastructure and could herald a new era of broader and tighter economic and business linkages between China and its partners. ..more

The China Outbound Forum Mission

Created at a very timely moment when the drive for overseas expansion of Chinese companies is entering a new phase and gathering further momentum, The China Outbound Forum differentiates itself from existing conferences, which are more focused on promoting overseas investment locations. It is designed to support Chinese companies as they consider expanding their activities internationally – while also attracting mainland companies well established at the global level. The Forum is a platform bringing together Chinese senior executives and their interlocutors from foreign companies as well as from other sources of expertise and knowledge, with an agenda designed to cover the key issues and challenges that Chinese outbound companies need to address successfully as they move abroad.

Recognizing Innovation and Success

On the basis of extensive research, the Forum is identifying 50 Chinese companies that have proved particularly innovative and successful in their expansion overseas. A high profile event in the context of the Forum will recognize and honor these companies – allowing the participants to benefit from success stories. A Report on Chinese Companies Going Global will also be published and widely distributed to the media and public.
