China is transforming the world, and it will impact your life and your business more and sooner than you think. And you thought you know China!
Recently, President Xi Jinping has been in discussions with Italy to open its port to China as part of the ‘Belt and Road’ initiative..
In March 2019, President Xi Jinping visited Italy, Monaco, and France, but the highlight was the signing of the agreement in Rome on 22 March 2019. This makes Italy the 1st G7 nation to sign on to the ‘Belt and Road’ initiative, expanding China’s potential influence in the not-too-distant future.
Whether you’re a student, investor, or business owner, your life will be largely influenced by China’s development.
Should you learn Mandarin and send your children to Chinese universities? How can you start investing in China? What should you do to position your business for success in this next era spearheaded by China? If you have questions like these on your mind, Global Investor Week is where you need to be.
Asia’s most innovative investment event, Global Investor Week, is coming to Kuala Lumpur from 13 April to 14 April 2019.
Organised by Capital Dynamics, in celebration of their 30 years anniversary, the 2018/2019 Global Investor Week will be bringing in some of the most prolific speakers from all around the world for a one-of-a-kind investment event in Malaysia.
Global Investor Week promises to provoke thought and shed light on important subjects. Here’s a sneak peek of what to expect:
1. Find out Malaysia’s economic and political future, and how it will affect you
Wondering where Malaysia is headed in terms of politics, economics, and its markets? Come discover the real state of affairs in New Malaysia, including crucial structural issues and where the nation stands amidst the fluid global economy.
The first session on Day 1, this open discussion will feature Capital Dynamics’ Managing Director Tan Teng Boo and Permatang Pauh’s MP Nurul Izzah.
2. Discover investment opportunities beyond ASEAN countries, where China has already strategically expanded into
There’s a reason why China’s top leadership like Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang have made 79 visits to Africa over the past 10 years. While most Malaysians still have eyes set locally and in surrounding regions, China has already been making headway in Africa, which will add more than 1.3 billion people in the next 40 years.
Come listen to Professor Peter Kagwanja, Chief Executive of Africa Policy Institute, to find out how you can set your business up for long-term success following China’s footsteps.
3. Will China’s ‘Belt and Road’ initiative harm or benefit you? Get the truth and be prepared.
Another major project by China—the Belt and Road Initiative, a plan to connect China to 152 countries around the world, has also been met with mixed reactions. Malaysia, for example, is still on the fence and renegotiating a RM81.5 billion high-speed rail deal.
Learn from Dr Goh ChorChing, a Malaysian economic adviser with 20 years of experience in the World Bank, on how China’s Belt and Road Initiative will affect your business in the future.
You will not find another investment event in Asia that brings together so many qualified and experienced speakers, so you definitely don’t want to miss this!

1. Tan Teng Boo, Managing Director of Capital Dynamics
