Against the backdrop of the current frictions between China and the U.S., 400 leaders in business and government will gather at Horasis China Meeting in Las Vegas to engage in discussions that revolve around US and China dialogue and joint innovation projects.
Many of the functions will be attended by high-ranking U.S. and Chinese politicians, including multiple governors and representatives from some of the world’s leading organizations.
Leaders attending include Suzanne Clark, President, US Chamber of Commerce, Borja Gonzalez del Regueral, Vice Dean, Professor of Business Analytics and Innovation, IE, and George Iliev, Director, Association of MBAs.
During the two-day conference panels will be held on topics such as the economics of going green, the role of millennial entrepreneurs, US-China diplomatic relationships, and others.
The organization’s Chairman Dr. Frank-Jürgen Richter, a former director at the World Economic Forum in Davos, founded the organization in 2005.
Said Dr. Richter in an earlier interview, “It is a slow process but I believe we can prevail and help to develop a richer, more socially aware and peaceful society.”
