Speech Topics

The Transformational Rise of China & India

Dragons and Tigers on the Global Stage—What It Means to You.

Given the scale and growth rates of emerging economies coupled with access to global capital and global talent, it has now become much easier for an ambitious company from an emerging economy to become a global powerhouse and compete head-on with established giants such as Nissan, IBM, Cisco, and the like. Wang focuses on the forces that are propelling the rise of the emerging market multinational, the opportunities and challenges they face, the relative strengths and weaknesses of the Chinese dragons versus the Indian tigers, and how established companies from developed economies can compete effectively with these new challengers.

Getting China and India Right.

Based on solid data and rich examples, Wang illustrates that China and India are the only two countries in the world that simultaneously constitute four game-changing realities: mega-markets for almost every product and service, platforms to dramatically reduce a company’s global cost structure, platforms to significantly boost a company’s global technology and innovation base, and springboards for the emergence of new fearsome global competitors. This talk outlines how companies can leverage the market and the resource opportunities presented by the China and India phenomenon to achieve global dominance within their particular industries.

Global Trends and Game Changers.

Haiyan Wang outlines the biggest global trends and game changers of the next decade and what they mean to you. By 2025, emerging economies like China and India will grow from 1/3 of the global GDP to about half. China will have caught up to the U.S. in terms of economy, and India, will be the third largest in the world. This growth will not always be even, though, or evenly distributed. Haiyan Wang looks at the coming two-speed economy and outlines the factors that will shape global business and the world – diverging demographics, stressed natural resources, and empowered individuals. In a multi-polar business world, what are the ramifications for multinational organizations? Who thrives in this new environment? Based on solid data and rich examples, Wang shares insights on the business world in 2025 and helps audiences navigate – and succeed in – the shifts ahead.
