Since our last Beijing conference in March 2017, the three global superpowers -- China, the EU and the US -- have gone through major policy shifts. The conference in 2018 convenes dozens of Nobel Laureates, high-level academics, key policy makers and business leaders to examine the roles of the state in China and the West to determine how the different growth strategies and national policies being pursued by these three major economic blocks are likely to evolve and develop on the world stage.

The conference is centered around four sessions:

1. Changes in Chinese, US, and European Economic Policy

2. The Potential for Cooperation and Competition in International Trade

3. The Role of Innovation and the Digital Economy: New Opportunities and Challenges for Governance

4. The Future of Global Economic Relations: Lessons from China, EU, the US, and Beyond

The fourth session will be open to the public and will be live-streamed on March 23, 2018 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
