The Great Decoupling – Why the future of China-US relations will never be same - and what it means for businesses

More than a year has passed since the start of the US-China trade war. A trade deal is in sight, but the decoupling of the worlds two major economies is here to stay. The decoupling will affect supply chains, consumption patterns, and what we talk about when we talk about the global economic system.

At this year's Chinese Macro Economic Forum we will do a deep dive in to the great decoupling. What is driving it and where will it take the world? What will it mean for Nordic companies? And how should a multinational company position itself in these fraught times?

Chief China Analyst Allan von Mehren of Danske Bank will present his insights on what economic forces are driving the China-US decoupling and where it is taking us. China's foremost authority on Chinese tech, Dan Wang of Gavekal Dragonomics, will walk us through US policy controls and how they affect China's technology development.

Further, we present you with a panel of top Nordic business leaders to talk about their strategies in dealing with the decoupling, followed by a Q&A.

Business Leader Panel

  1. Thomas Keller - President at Vestas China
  2. Zhen Mao - Country Manager at Aker Solutions
  3. Xuelian Li - Finance Head and AMD at Metso Minerals China

The great China-US decoupling is here to stay; this is your opportunity to get your business on top, before it drags you under.
