    We cordially invite you to join renowned international scholars and top professionals in private equity, law, government policy, venture capital, corporate strategy, banking and technology to discuss the changing flow of investment funds into and out of China, and the new opportunities and risks involved. Leaders from, CIC, Tencent, Fosun, Shenzhen Capital Group, BYD, The Carlyle Group, MOFCOM and top international law firms will gather to share their perspectives on what it takes to succeed in making strategic investments into and out of China. With China's "new normal" policies aimed at altering the balance between the government and the market, will Chinese companies seeking acquisitions abroad be helped or hurt? What new opportunities will be created for those seeking to invest into China? Speakers will include John M. de Figueiredo, Edward and Ellen Marie Schwarzman Professor of Law and Professor of Strategy and Economics, and Duke Law alumni Gao Xiqing '86, former head of China's sovereign wealth fund, and Li Xioming '90, the Head of China Practice at White & Case LLP.
