We’ve been following the development of Chinese auto industry since the early 2000s, including the growth of the market, the establishment of Chinese joint ventures with foreign brands, the development of Chinese only brands, and especially the government’s policies that support the development of New Energy Vehicles (pure electrics, plug-in-hybrids, and fuel cell vehicles).
This year’s conference will continue our discussion of all things automotive in China in order to bring forward to our audience the most recent information about what is going on in China. This year we will feature a Chinese researcher who has just completed a book about Geely, one of China’s brands without a foreign joint venture partner. We will also discuss our recent research on China while bringing in other experts to discuss other issues.
Some of the questions we will address will include: Are the Chinese non-joint venture brands becoming more successful that the joint ventures? How far along are the Chinese in developing and selling electric vehicles? How is the government changing its auto policies to support NEVs? What new NEV companies are selling in the Chinese market? How has the pandemic affected manufacturers and suppliers?
Confirmed Speakers include:
Bruce Belzowski, Managing Director, Automotive Futures will moderate the conference and provide an overview of the current Chinese market.
Hua Wang, Business Professor, East China Normal University in Shanghai, China will discuss his recent book on the Geely Motor Company.
