2009 Annual Meeting: Bridging East and West

 October 1 - 4, 2009 New York City, USA

 One objective of the conference is to bridge the gap between the academic and business worlds of Asia and North America. In that spirit we will bring together business leaders, academic administrators, and scholars of international business from the Asian region, including China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, India, and Korea, with our American colleagues to meet and discuss contemporary and emerging issues in the global academic and business environments. We also provide a platform to promote collaborations to strengthen international business initiatives.

If you are a researcher, educator, policy maker, business practitioner, or student interested in international business, this conference is for you:

  • Meet and socialize with the leaders in the business world;
  • Learn about and exchange ideas on current international business issues and education;
  • Network with organizations, institutions, and experts in international business from around the world;
  • Develop connections with overseas institutions for possible collaborations in joint research, professional training, student exchange, internship, and educational cooperation;
  • Get in touch with overseas institutions that provide employment, visiting scholar, and overseas teaching assignments for individual faculty; and
  • Visit New York cultural attractions through tourism arrangements coordinated by the Center for International Business Studies.

China: Threat or Opportunity to America
How trade affects the relationship and interests of both nations

Since its accession to the World Trade Organization in 2001, China has witnessed rapid increases in gross domestic product and foreign investments and is now positioned as the world's third-largest exporter. During the first three quarters of 2007, China created a $214 billion trade surplus with the United States, representing 34 percent of the U.S. trade deficit. Although this is sometimes seen as a threat to U.S. economic welfare, others view this type of economic shift as an opportunity. For example, New York City's Mayor Bloomberg noted that "China is not a threat to America, but an opportunity. An incredible opportunity."

These types of opportunities may be leveraged by exploring the cause of such emerging trade imbalances and their impact on national and international economies, as well as resulting solutions and bilateral efforts to correct the problem. In February 2008, the Center for International Business Studies held a forum in NYIT-Manhattan to discuss these issues with a distinguished delegation from China consisting of trade officials, deans of business schools, scholars, and business executives and their American counterparts.

 

The speakers included Mr. Kuang Weilin, Deputy Consul General of People's Republic of China in New York; Dr. John Rutledge, Chairman of Rutledge Capital; James T. Gallagher, Senior Vice President for Energy and Telecommunications, New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC); Ambassador Ahmad Kamal, President of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations, Ambassador and Permanent Representative, Pakistan (retired); Professor Xinquan Tu, Dean, University of International Business and Economics; Professor Feiyue Zhou, Beijing Institute of Mechanical Industry; and others. The conference concluded with a panel discussion.
