Welcome from the Chairmen

As Chairmen of the Organizing Committee, we are pleased to invite you to Beijing on June 13-14, 2014 for the 46th Wharton Global Forum.

For several decades, China has experienced unprecedented economic expansion. In 2010, the country catapulted into position as the world’s second largest economy after the United States. Analysts anticipate that continued growth could push China into the number-one spot in coming decades. However, maintaining this economic momentum could be a challenge. The solution—for China and other global markets seeking opportunities for sustaining or boosting their upward trajectory in coming years—is innovation. Thus, the Beijing Forum will feature programming coalescing around the theme: “Growth Through Innovation.”

During the Forum, top business leaders, renowned academics, and Wharton alumni will convene to address topics related to innovation at both the micro and macro levels. Our diverse program will feature numerous opportunities for attendees to learn from the School’s leading faculty and high-level speakers, exchange dialogue relating to the most pressing issues facing business today, and build networks.

We hope that you will join us for this exciting event.
