China - Global Innovation Superpower

Professor Yipeng Liu, Director of the Centre for China Management and Global Business, is delivering a talk on how China has developed over the last forty years from a developing country to a global superpower in manufacturing, technology and online.

The event is led by Andrew Gaule, 高安卓, CEO of Aimava, a global advisory firm which supports leading corporates, business ventures and investors. Andrew will be outlining the focus of the talk, which is on China’s strategic innovation, industrial drive, corporate innovation and the capability that is being build in their resources and people. He will then give his contextual perspective, backed up by examples and statistics.
