In recent years, we have seen a dramatic shift in China’s transition in the global economy including:

(1)    In 2012, China became one of the largest global investors, according to the joint statistic report by the Ministry of Commerce, the National Bureau of Statistics, and the State Administration of Foreign Exchange in China. Outward FDI amounted to USD 87.8 billion.

(2)    On October 7, 2014, the International Monetary Fund announced that China had surpassed the United States as the world’s largest economy, a distinction held by the US since 1873 when it overtook Great Britain. This global phenomenon is not well understood and is fraught with opportunities and challenges.

Since 2006, China Goes Global pulls together a unique set of contributions on the globalization of the Chinese business environment, economy, and society. The conference is unique in several ways. First, the conference is developmental in nature and we invite competitive papers, recently published book authors, focused panels and work-in-progress for submission. The conference provides an ideal opportunity for scholars and practitioners, as well as Ph.D. students to share and discuss their most recent high-quality work with other experts in this research field. Best papers are also given the chance to be published in the International Journal of Emerging Markets, a scopus ranked journal by Emerald. Second, we have fun, international and inter-disciplinary. In addition to insightful ideas, the conference also includes a reception, a performance, and great people and scholars with whom you can network.
