It's becoming clear that the
emergence of what writer Fareed Zakaria calls the
"Post-American World" is the biggest story of our
time. Even an occasional visitor to China can see that a
Copernican revolution is under way, where virtually every field,
from coal to contemporary art, will be affected by the rise of
China and the rest of the non-Western world.
Visionary business, technology and media leaders are recognizing
this change, seeking to understand this revolution, and starting to
factor China into their future plans. However, for leaders that are
not living and working in China full-time, it is extremely difficult
to keep up with the pace of change in China where today's knowledge
can be rendered obsolete in less than a year.
Led by The
China Business Network
and co-organized by
CNReviews, the inaugural China 2.0
Tour is sponsored by Edelman Digital China
and represents a unique opportunity for companies and
individuals to gain a deeper understanding of China. Unlike a
typical business conference or large trade delegation, we seek to
go "one-level deeper" by creating a series of
small-scale, exclusive meetups where people can share more openly
about their business successes and challenges, and provide a
deeper view into the nature of building a successful venture in
China. We also are taking an interdisciplinary approach by looking
at social media, clean technology, gaming, wireless, and other
areas where trends in China will affect markets around the world.
We also seek to provide informal
opportunities to go off-message and off-the-record, so that
long-lasting relationships can be built that will be a foundation
for a sustained ability by tour participants to keep up with
future changes in China.
