The topic:
The event is a unique opportunity to gain a window into recent business trends in China and discuss where China may be going over the next five years.

China is a fast growing market and in transition from an emerging nation to a more established economy and global powerhouse. The Chinese government has identified seven new areas of focus. The topic is about China as a changing economy and how the government's five-year plan will affect Chinese citizens, businesses and relationships with the US.

Interesting questions include: What might these developments mean for technology-driven and other businesses in SW Florida? What opportunities may there be for students of business and entrepreneurs in China 2017? How can institutions such as FGCU usefully participate in a continuing dialog with Chinese businesses and higher education?
