‘Portugal is expected to grow strongly over the next couple of years,’ Rui Machete, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Portugal, said in his welcome speech. ‘And we hope that more Chinese enterprises venture to Portugal and more Portuguese enterprises come to China,’ he added. Xiong Meng, Executive Vice Chairman, China Federation of Industrial Economics, China, said that China is currently undergoing considerable change – ‘we will push for more economic reforms in the months ahead.’ He also mentioned that new silk roads will connect Asia and Europe with roads, railways and ocean shipping routes.

António Mexia, Chief Executive Officer, EDP, Portugal, illustrated how Portugal can become a hub for Chinese investments. ‘The partnership between EDP – Portugal’s largest company - and its shareholder China Three Gorges (CTG) is a good example of a successful partnership,’ he said. ‘There is little chance that China’s market woes will directly affect the global financial system,’ explained Liu Ruiqi, Chairman, Heng Yuan Xiang Group, China. ‘China needs to change its reliance on foreign demand, and should focus on domestic demand,’ Zhang Zhigang, President, China National Aviation Fuel Group, China, suggested. ‘Innovation is most essential to upgrading the Chinese economy and improving its performance,’ William Haseltine, Chairman, ACCESS Health International, USA, concluded.

Guan Jianzhong, Chairman, Dagong Global Credit Rating, and Yan Jiehe, Chairman, China Pacific Construction Group, were awarded as Chinese Business Leaders of the Year.
