Panel I (Plenary): Finding Paths in the New China

As China continues structural adjustments, its economy is evolving into two tracks – declining traditional sectors and booming new sectors, coined by some economists as Old China vs New China. What are the possible trajectories of these economic tracks in the years to come? How should business leaders redefine their strategies in response to the changing China market landscape as well as to new technologies and business models?
