The International School of Beijing opens its doors to the public for a very special event featuring American author, journalist and businessman, James McGregor. Mark your calendars for Friday, April 22 from 7-8:30pm for the presentation of “30 Years of China Being Open for Business and What Can We Expect for the Next 30.”This free event will be held in the ISB Theater.
Over the past 30 years China has undergone a radical economic transformation, moving from a developing nation to the world’s second-largest economy. China is now the world’s biggest exporter and largest auto manufacturer. It is also the largest energy user as its demand for power has more than doubled in the last decade. With its newly-found power position, Chinese leaders are faced with lifting their focus from their overwhelming domestic to-do list and figuring out how to handle a global community that expects China to think about what is best for the entire world. In his speech, James McGregor will describe how he sees this drama unfolding in China, and how China will handle its new role as a world leader.
