How We Drive Business Growth & Innovation in China

Dear Friends of CEIBS,

We cordially invite you to attend the CEIBS Executive Forum on August 31 with Dow Greater China President Mr. Lim Yoke Loon, who will give a lecture titled “How We Drive Business Growth & Innovation in China”.

Over the past decade, an ascendant China has experienced remarkable economic growth which has led to the rapid rise of its middle class, and tremendous developments in technology and infrastructure. China’s transformation from a manufacturing-driven and export-led economy to one underpinned by services and domestic consumption is now firmly underway. As a material science company, Dow is driving innovations that help address many of the world’s challenging problems, such as the need for fresh food, safer and more sustainable transportation, clean water, energy efficiency, and more durable infrastructure. Through innovation, Dow looks for ways to create real value for local markets and support government priorities in economic and social development.

Dow has maintained double-digit growth in China for several years. In his lecture, Dow Greater China President Lim Yoke Loon will discuss the strategies and practices the company is using to drive its sustainable growth and innovation both today and for the future.

As Dow Greater China President, Mr. Lim is responsible for developing and implementing business strategy, engaging and cultivating critical stakeholders’ relationships, and leading the company’s organization in Greater China, which is Dow’s second largest international market. Mr. Lim was elected the Vice Chairman of the Executive Board of the China Petroleum & Chemical Industry Federation Multinational Corporation Committee in December 2016.

Prior to his current position, Mr. Lim was General Manager of Dow Coating Materials, Asia Pacific, based in Singapore, with additional oversight responsibilities for Advanced Materials in Asia Pacific. Lim joined Dow through the acquisition of Rohm and Haas in 2009. He started at Rohm and Haas in 2007 as the General Manager of the Coatings business for Southeast Asia. In 2010, he took on additional responsibilities as the Country Manager of Dow Singapore.

Mr. Lim spent 11 years with Ciba Specialty Chemicals, where he held various leadership roles in sales and marketing before joining Dow. Prior to that, he was an engineer with Hitachi Chemical Singapore, which specialized in the production of printed circuit boards. He holds the rank of Captain in the Singapore Armed Forces with his last appointment being the Company Commander of an Armour Unit.

We look forward to seeing you at this highly-anticipated event.
