On March 13, local time, a roadshow meeting of 2017 Fortune Global Forum jointly hosted by Guangzhou municipal government and Fortune magazine was held in New York, USA.
At the meeting, Cai Chaolin, Vice Mayor of Guangzhou, presented the city's development concept toward openness and innovation, while the participants, including top executives of Fortune magazine and the representatives from American companies including FedEx and GE and local Guangzhou enterprises, explored around the topic "how to succeed in China as a multinational".
As learned, this is the first time that the roadshow meeting of 2017 Fortune Global Forum took place at the economic heart of the USA and had direct dialogue with the Fortune Global 500 companies. Present at the meeting were also Alan Murray, Chief Content Officer of Time Inc. and Editor-in-Chief of Fortune and Consul General Zhang Qiyue from the Consulate-General of PRC in New York.
At the meeting, leading American companies such as FedEx and McKinsey also sought to better spot the trade cooperation opportunities between China and the United States. FedEx CEO Fred Smith told the reporter that FedEx has set up an Asian-Pacific Logistic Center in Guangzhou. Many FedEx's clients enter China via this center which now has become a strategic hub. He said China is transforming from export-oriented to consumption-driven development, and could open up more sectors, such as transportation.
