BEIJING, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CAIJING Annual Conference 2013 will be held in Beijing from Nov. 28-29, 2012. The two–day Conference will be hosted by CAIJING Magazine, CAIJING.com.cn and the Boyuan Foundation. This year, CAIJING Annual Conference will attract large participation among Chinese and Western business leaders, politicians and academics, such as Chen Deming, the Minister of Commerce of China, Shang Fulin, the Chairman of the China Banking Regulatory Commission, Justin Lin, the former Senior Vice President and Chief Economist at the World Bank, John Howard, the former Australian Prime Minister, Austan D.

2012 is shaping up to be a year of deep adjustments. The European debt crisis continues to simmer, the economic recovery proves to be anemic in both the United States and Japan, growth in BRICS countries appears to be losing steam, the Middle East and North Africa are going through painful transformation, and tension over disputed maritime claims in Asia Pacific is mounting. Globally, painful structural adjustments are under way as a new round of political and economic restructuring is on the horizon.
In such uncertain times, China will be positioned to calmly restart its comprehensive reform agenda, especially after smoothly completing the country's recent leadership transition. Following 30 years of rapid growth, how can China find sustainable driving forces for moderate or even slow growth going forward and cope with new challenges arising from social transformation? Seeking answers to these questions will test policymakers' political wisdom and the consensus of a wide range of social groups.
How should China further promote reform and opening up, bid farewell to narrowly-defined economic reforms, actively and steadily push forward institutional reforms in social, cultural and political arenas, strengthen the rule of law, and improve its social governance framework? How should China break free from the undesirable institutional mechanisms that curb its sustainable economic development and smoothly complete a social transformation by altering government functions, adjusting fiscal and taxation systems, unlocking dividends related to factors of production, adjusting income distribution, promoting the reform of state-owned enterprises, and creating an urbanization process based on modern agriculture? These issues not only have bearing on the future of China, but will also affect global trends.
As the end of the year draws near, influential politicians, business leaders and academicians from both home and abroad will again gather at "CAIJING Annual Conference 2013: Forecasts and Strategies" to discuss changes in the international arena, China's reforms and policymaking, and how to deepen its restructuring. Topics on the first day include "An Economic Outlook for China, the U.S. and the World Economy," "China's Economy: Review of 2012 and Outlook for 2013," and "Urbanization and Land System Reform." In addition, during the CAIJING Annual Dialogue, six Chinese and global experts will discuss "State-Owned Enterprises & State-Owned Assets," one of the most challenging economic issues in China. In the evening, 20 Sino-US business leaders will gather at the CAIJING Annual Conference Themed Dinner Party and exchange ideas about opportunities in business and investment between the two countries.
On the second day of the Conference, topics will range from "Challenges & Reform Breakthroughs," "From an Economy Governed by the Rule of Law to a Whole Society Governed by the Rule of Law," "Deepening Financial Reforms and Challenges Facing the Financial Sector" to "High-Tech and the Transformation of New Media." There will be six evening activities after the daytime sessions, covering the real estate industry, China's pension system, the role of lawyers in China's reform process, private finance, clean energy, and the luxury goods industry.
