Executive Forum: The Transformation of Multinational Companies in China
Please join us for our upcoming CEIBS Executive Forum on October 27, 2021, with Mr. Yihao Zhang, President & CEO of GE Healthcare China, a leading global innovator in medical technology and digital solutions, who will give a lecture on The Transformation of Multinational Companies in China.
The world is changing rapidly. Evolving consumer demand, climate change, disruptive technologies and uncertainty about the global economic recovery are all issues that companies have to carefully think about and deal with.
2021 marks a remarkable year for China as it enters a new stage. The country’s 14th Five Year Plan comes at a major turning point, as China seeks to execute massive economic change amidst unprecedented external uncertainty and increasing geopolitical tensions. “High Quality Development, “Dual Circulation,” “Rural Revitalization,” “Innovation Nation,” and “Healthy China 2030” are some of the key priorities on the agenda. What has worked well for MNCs in in China over the past two decades may not work in today’s context. Companies must remain agile and resilient in the face of tough competition and continue to adapt to and capture the speed of China’s growth.
As a leading global innovator in medical technology and digital solutions, GE Healthcare is transforming its purpose and localization strategy to better address China’s upmost needs for healthcare industry. GE Healthcare is one of a few companies that have a full spectrum of localization capabilities in R&D, manufacturing, marketing and sales, services, talent and organization.
During this session, we will also learn about the latest updates about GE Healthcare’s business strategy, culture building and talent development.
