Event description

Description

Early Bird Pricing ends October 11 (regular admission $75 Asia Society members/$100 Non-members/$125 Registration & Membership)

Asia Society and the Bay Area Council are organizing a conference that will look at the trends and issues in the emerging narratives around Chinese innovation and China’s rise as a significant source of foreign direct investment into the U.S. Building on both organizations’ growing portfolio of reports and dialogues on these issues, the conference will serve as the backdrop for the release of two reports: the first of which will explore China’s drive for innovation and the second report which will provide a comprehensive look at China’s investment into California.

Join us and be a part of the conversation with California's large and growing community of businesses, investors, and service providers across a broad range of industries (e.g. ICT, real estate, healthcare, etc.) eager to seize on the opportunities coming from China, as well as public sector leaders from the state- to city-levels, business associations, academia, and the general public.
