Panel Discussion


Panel 1: Innovations in Cities: Smart Cities, Smart Planning, Smart Design

创新城市:未来城市、智能规划与设计

分会关键词:城市地标、房地产绿色及可持续城市规划、超级城市、智能设施建设

Though China’s economic success has largely been built on investments and exports in the last few decades, China is changing to a new model of generating growth through domestic consumptions. The transformation of China’s cities is crucial for this effort. The glittering landmark structures of Water Cube and The GreenPix in Beijing belong to many visitors’ to-see lists. China’s ambition of building the Tianjin eco-city from scratch, which will be equipped with advanced light rail transit system and sun-powered solarscape, captures the world’s attention. But on the other hand, with the recent media littered with its skyrocketing pollution and monster traffic congestions in megacities, as well as inefficient “superblocks” constructions and municipal debts in various second and third-tier cities, there is little doubt that China still needs to look for smarter urban designs. What new approaches to urbanization are China adopting? How successful are these approaches? How can China meet the challenges of urban design to clean up the country’s environment and implement smarter infrastructure plans?

Case-studies: Innovation & Start-ups - A Conversation with Young Entrepreneurs
创新精神与起步公司:对话青年企业家


分会看点:“创业”现在已然成为时下年轻人最热衷于讨论的话题之一。本分会我们为大家请来前亚洲电视(ATV)、NBC、ABC等电视台主播/制作人,和几位来自餐饮、高新科技、媒体和金融行业青年企业家,与大家分享他们的创业之路,以及关于创业、企业家精神和社交媒体于今日之影响力的看法。
 
 
The remarkable growth of China has largely been driven by the emergence of a group of capable entrepreneurs who have transformed the economy into one increasingly driven by innovation. Recently, China’s Premier Li Keqiang pledged more policies to encourage entrepreneurial activity and support start-up business across China. In particular, the premier promised more effective support for student entrepreneurs in response to a difficult employment market in China. On this panel, we are highlighting four young entrepreneurs who have experience in creating startups both in China and in the U.S. They will share their insights and inspirations of starting their own business. How did they first come up with the idea? How to build a team? What are their visions for future Chinese entrepreneurship?
