World Business Leaders Conference and ICC Asia-Pacific CEO Forum

ICC Asia-Pacific CEO Forum - Kunshan, China
  • Location: Kunshan, China
  • Date: 14/05/2014
  • Event Type: Forum
  • Language: English

The World Business Leaders Conference and ICC Asia-Pacific CEO Forum - combining interactive panel discussions and networking opportunities - will explore how the Asia-Pacific region can help stimulate the global economy.

The 2014 ICC Asia-Pacific CEO Forum will be held in Kunshan, China on 14 May and builds on the inaugural ICC Asia Pacific CEO Forum held in New Delhi in 2013. The Forum will also serve as the third annual ICC World Business Leaders Conference (a yearly event showcasing key policy issues for the region in Kunshan) and will be held at the same time as the third China Import Expo (CIE 2014).

The Forum will further the discussion on how the Asia-Pacific region can help stimulate the global economy. It will also begin to address how the rise of the Asia Pacific region will affect global governance as the world economy rebounds from the crisis.

The Forum will provide an opportunity for high level networking and exploring business connectivity with nearly 400 CEOs from all over the world. Forum participants will be able to interact with high-level Chinese government Ministers and participate in an ICC G20 Policy Consultation, which will serve as a platform to present their views to G20 leaders in Australia later in the year.
