Doing Business in China: Breakfast Seminar on September 25, 2015 on FDU’s Metropolitan Campus

Teaneck, NJ (September 16, 2015)— Fairleigh Dickinson University invites you to attend a breakfast seminar on “Doing Business in China.”

As the headlines note China is the second largest economy in the world. The volatility in the stock market demonstrates our interdependence and the importanceof this market. A diverse and knowledgeable panel of experts will explore this and more at the seminar.

Why China? China responded quickly to the global economic downturn in 2008 and, as a result of a combination of monetary, fiscal, and bank-lending measures China’s GDP grew 9.2 percent in 2009 and an impressive 10.3 percent in 2010. Projections are for the GDP growth to slow slightly in 2011 to between 9 and 9.5 percent. Accompanying the rise in China’s GDP, U.S. exports to China increased in 2010 by over 32 percent to almost US$92 billion. Of course, China’s exports to the U.S. also increased by 23 percent, leading to a balance of trade deficit of US$273 billion. After falling in 2009, the trade imbalance with China is now on the rise again. China remains the U.S.’s second largest trading partner after Canada.

When: Friday, September 25, 2015 from 9:00 a.m. to Noon

Where: Fairleigh Dickinson University, Metropolitan Campus, Rutherford Room
