The First Halter Financial Summit “China in a Changing World” hosted a gathering of the world’s top-level executives, government officials, financial professionals, economists, and investors to explore how the world financial climate has changed since the most recent global recession, the worst since the great depression, and specifically China’s future role in the global economy. The Summit was held in Shanghai, China April 7-9, 2010 at the Pudong Shangri-La Hotel.
Our keynote speaker, George W. Bush, Founder of the George W. Bush Foundation and 43rd President of the United States of America, gave his view of current world events; former U.S. Ambassador to China, Senator James Sasser gave his view of Sino-U.S. relations; economist and China expert Professor Pieter Bottelier held a spirited dialogue with Dr. Zhang Tao and discussed China’s changing role in the world economy; the heads of the world’s major stock exchanges gathered to talk about how they plan to interact with Chinese companies; and bankers, fund managers and deal makers from around the globe contributed their thoughts and ideas about how Chinese companies can take advantage of the increasing world demand to invest in China.
On the first day of the conference, April 7, there were seven separate rooms in which over 70 Chinese companies gave corporate presentations throughout the day. There were two rooms dedicated to Chinese companies listed in the U.S. markets. The remaining five rooms held Chinese companies listed in Hong Kong, Europe, Canada, Shanghai, and Shenzhen, as well as companies that are still private and not yet trading on any market.
This conference was generously supported by sponsors, including: The Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, ROTH Capital Partners, Deutsche Borse Group, and Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP.
