About the Conference

China outbound direct investment has been growing at over 30% annually since 2005 and reached $103 billion in 2014.  It has caught up with the foreign direct investment (FDI) in China for the first time and marked the inflection point where China becomes a net capital exporter. As this trend continues, more Chinese businesses are poised to expand globally and take on more complex corporate mergers and acquisitions, especially in North America and Europe. Co-hosted by China Times, Beijing Jiaotong University and Global PMI Partners, the 2016 Global M&A Summit (China Outbound M&A Conference) prepares large private and state owned enterprises for success by bringing international M&A integration experts and local Chinese company executives to the Center of China M&A Research at Beijing Jiaotong University for an intimate one day conference on January 15th, 2016. The conference is under the general guidance of China Association for Public Companies and is assisted by Jianchi Entrepreneurs Club.

We have invited top executives from China public listed companies, the State Owned Enterprise (SOE) and large private companies, heads of financial institutions, partners from mergers and acquisitions fund and well-known international M&A experts from over 10 countries, and more than 200 elite guests to join this special event. From this conference, the participants could benefit from the following:

The latest global investment trends, environment and policy
Opportunities and challenges of industry mergers and acquisitions under the new growth environment
Cross-border M&A success strategies and factors
M&A management case studies and cultural management
Improve the success rate and investment returns of investment and M&A from overseas ventures
