CHINA & TAIWAN:
CROSS-BORDER BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES IN THE ERA OF ANTI-GLOBALIZATION
Wednesday, March 28, 6:30–7:45 p.m.
Rapidly changing financial, economic, cultural, and political factors could disrupt trade and business in East Asia. Yet opportunities exist amid the global uncertainties. In 2016, the total amount of trade between China and Taiwan was $117.9 billion. From an investment perspective, both inbound and outbound Taiwanese M&A activity has remained strong so far in 2017. As the US pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement, Taiwan and other governments are expanding their investments in renewable energy and related technology.
Given the dynamic environment in East Asia, how should multinational firms operating in mainland China and Taiwan view geopolitical risk? How are slower economic growth, a rising middle class, and other demographic trends affecting global supply chains in the region? How will economic relations between the mainland and Taiwan be defined in the future, and what role will US foreign policy play in this? Join CGA Adjunct Instructor Earl Carr, managing director at Momentum Advisors, for a conversation on these critical questions.
