The First edition of Series of Roundtables “One Belt One Road Initiative (BRI) and Global Leadership” will be held on March 22, 2018 in Paris.
Facing the arise of various hopes and concerns around the BRI, we, four leading universities in China and in France, would like to animate a Roundtable taking the enhancement of business partnerships and cooperation between China and France as a starting point to comment the BRI and share the concept and some good practices of Global Leadership in the 21st century among business experts, researchers, students and people who are interested.
Concretely, in the context of the BRI and through the dialogue between the invited Chinese and French entrepreneurs and other specialists, this Roundtable will be a space of expressions of understanding from the two sides on the transnational leadership of an international firm, and allow our guests to make some concrete suggestions based on their respective work experiences in the international business arena.
This Roundtable also aims to discuss the long-term and strategic cooperation mechanisms between Chinese and French enterprises under the new globalization era (rise in power of China, digitization, multi-level economic and cultural exchanges, international cooperation, etc.), the new opportunities for international companies, so interdisciplinary and cross border talents, and, of course, the indispensable global leadership.
