Hon Tony Blair, Mr. Lou Jiwei, Chairman and CEO, China Investment Corporation, Jeffrey Immelt, Chairman & CEO, General Electric Company, and Mark Tucker, Group Executive Chairman & CEO, AIA Group.

Gaby Abdelnour, Chairman and CEO of J.P. Morgan Asia Pacific said, “We are pleased to welcome the world’s financial community to this, our 7th and largest China Conference. This year’s conference also marks the firm’s 90th anniversary in China. We are proud of what we have accomplished over the past 90 years, and even more excited about what’s ahead for the next century.”
Jing Ulrich, Managing Director and Chairman of Global Markets–China, said developments in China are increasingly central to the strategic decisions of investors everywhere. Total assets under management represented by investment firms at this year's conference amount to US$15 trillion.
"With this in mind, we have taken great care to create a comprehensive program that encompasses the most pertinent issues and changes facing the Chinese economy. As China ascends new heights as an economic and financial power, its leaders are focusing on promoting domestic consumption and developing the country’s resource-rich inland regions. However, China must still grapple with challenges associated with inflation and an uncertain global economic outlook. These and other topical issues will be discussed over the three-day event”, said Ms Ulrich.
