This Forum will bring together leaders including Kevin Rudd, former Prime Minister of Australia and Tang Min, Counselor of the State Council, policy makers, economists, leaders in NGOs and corporates, executives of financial institutions from both China and other countries, to discuss the current development and future trends of the Social Finance sector in China and worldwide.
Over the last few decades China’s economy has maintained a high rate of growth; however, the economy’s over-reliance on resource consumption and a GDP-oriented performance evaluation has met with serious challenges. The “restructuring of the nation’s economic growth model” has been the centerpiece of China’s recent economic reform, with regard for the quality of peoples’ lives and environmental capacity. Social Finance is an approach to managing money which delivers a social dividend and an economic return. The approaches to investment and funding share the twin focus of stimulating positive social and environmental returns for investors and the larger world.
The 2015 Forum will focus on how finance could support sustainable development, how to manage social performance in investment and wealth management. We also seek to bring philanthropy to the context of investment in China. The forum connects you with over 300 market builders who are driven to advance the Social Finance sector in China and globally.
Naina Subberwal Batra, CEO of AVPN, has been invited to speak in one of the panels related to the industry overview and the future development of the sector.
