“Witnessing a rapidly changing China: 2000 to 2010”

—China’s transformation and its real dynamics from a unique, personal perspective

As one of the most popular and well received icons in the Chinese media, Ada Lau of Phoenix TV is a top female news anchor, presenting many insightful thoughts and raising the bar on finance programs in the media field with more comprehensive and incisive reports. An ex investment banker on Wall Street (with ML and GS) and involved in numerous financing and acquisition projects, Ada has moved a long way as someone with a degree in Logistic Engineering from Cornell.

China is probably the fastest changing country in the world today, and the first ten years of our new millennium is one of the most exciting times to be working in China. After 30 years of opening up and reform, China has established a functional market economy yet at the same time opportunites still abound. People tend to focus a great deal on China’s “growth” without truly appreciating the important transformations, or changes it also makes, which she intends to address. This may help analyse or predict where China will be going in the future by better understanding its previous path.

Come and witness a novel perspective on the changes of China that Ada has personally gone through at her unique positions, such as the early days of financial integration with the world, how fast Chinese bankers’ mentalities change, the 2003 downturn in Hong Kong, Olympics and China’s new PR dilemma, 512 earthquake and its effect in bonding ordinary Chinese citizens, and the financial crisis of 2008 as well as the opportunities it presents.
