PwC at the Annual Meeting of the New Champions

1-3 July, World Economic Forum, Dalian

Globalisation 4.0 represents fundamental changes in the global economy that are reshaping companies, communities and countries at an unprecedented speed and scale. These changes are driven by environmental challenges, regional competition, economic disparities and technological disruption. They, in turn, require different forms of leadership and collaboration adapted to this new era of globalization. Leadership 4.0 requires an understanding of how new champions that are gaining economic influence are disrupting and transforming current industry models.

This will be the focus of the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting of the New Champions, which will be held in Dalian, China from 1-3 July 2019. Featuring over 100 sessions, the meeting brings together over 1,500 senior business and government leaders, policy makers, technology and innovation experts, academic leaders and journalists from over 80 countries. As a strategic partner to the WEF, PwC is once again having a strong presence at the event.
