FutureChina Global Forum® and Business China Awards 2019
The FutureChina Global Forum (FCGF®) 2019 is organised by Business China Singapore, which will offer top private and public sector leaders a premier platform to exchange insights, engage in high-level networking and to generate a pipeline of collaborative opportunities.
The FutureChina Global Forum (FCGF®) was created by Business China Singapore in 2010 and inaugurated by Singapore’s Founding Prime Minister and our Founding Patron, the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew. The Forum, into its 9th Edition, seeks to provide an international platform for the sharing of analyses and experiences about the new trends and forces surrounding China’s evolution to become one of the world’s largest economies.
The FutureChina Global Forum has established itself as a major event for business executives and personalities with an interest in China. The 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China has seen President Xi Jinping becoming the most powerful Chinese leader in the past few decades, aiming to shape China into a nation of global influence by 2050. Across the pacific, the US is looking to both cooperate and compete with China in global trade. How will the complex relationship between the two largest economies in the world affect the region and the world?
The huge Chinese funds flowing into the region and the innovation drive within China has transformed China’s economy to be less reliant on more traditional industries for growth. As China is growing exponentially, how do they address the concerns on sustainability? What are some of the problems that China faces amid the rapid urbanisation?
Sustainability is not just about environmental issues, it involves various sectors and every part of a human’s life. To be a sustainable country, countries must consider social factors such as changing demographics and social cohesion. With the aid of green, sustainable technologies, countries will be able to incorporate nature into city and balance economic growth with other challenges. Ensuring that sustainable development solutions are inclusive, affordable and accessible is critical, and Singapore, together with China and ASEAN, will be able to share the best practices from their respective countries and understand where solutions are needed most. With China’s growing influence, what leads can China offer to turn ideas on sustainability into reality?
FCGF 2019 will bring together 700 participants, most of them senior executives. It will provide a privileged opportunity for a stimulating exchange of insights and analyses.
This year, FCGF 2019 will be held in conjunction with the Ecosperity Week, with the theme "Sustainable Development in a Dynamic World Order".
Ecosperity Week is a confluence of events gathering global business leaders, policy-makers, investors, entrepreneurs and academia to drive action on sustainable development. The week-long programme features an innovation showcase, conferences, roundtable discussions, pitch sessions, site visits and networking opportunities across events. Ecosperity Week 2019 takes place from 4 to 7 June 2019 at Sands Expo and Convention Centre, in Marina Bay Sands Singapore.
We look forward to seeing you at this high signature event.
