EVENT: WDI's Corporate Speakers Series Kick Off Oct. 20
China's WTO representative will launch this year's series.
DATE: 4 p.m. Oct. 20
EVENT: Huang Rengang, Minister Counsellor of the Permanent Mission of the People's Republic of China to the World Trade Organization, will launch the William Davidson Institute's 2005-06 Corporate Speakers Series.
Huang's presentation, "China and the WTO: Opportunities and Challenges," will talk about the country's relationship with the trade organization and also address the increase in trade in services in China and the role that China plays in the globalization of services.
The WDI speakers series seeks to engage members of the corporate community in the larger discussion around globalization. Business leaders are invited to share their first-hand experience dealing with the challenges and opportunities operating in emerging markets.
The talks are geared for MBA students at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan who are about to enter the job market, although BBA students as well as faculty and others from around the university are invited to attend. The series is a way for the Davidson Institute to be involved with students at the business school.
Most speakers talk for about 30 minutes and then take questions from the audience. Students are able to get real-world perspective from the speakers on issues they've discussed in class as well as practical career advice.
PLACE: Room W0750 in the lower level of Wyly Hall at the Ross School of Business (on the corner of Hill and E. University streets)
SPONSORS: William Davidson Institute and the U-M Center for Chinese Studies
