    Event Report
Impressions from them 2008 meeting:
Business people from China have quite a high level of confidence that we will recover from the impact, and they see more opportunities through this crisis.
Fu Chengyu, Chairman, CNOOC, China
China could avoid much of the fallout from the slowing world economy, as it has accumulated foreign reserves in recent decades and has laid a solid foundation for future growth
Yan Bingzhu, Chairman, Bank of Beijing, China
China's banks are in good shape, also because the government has prevented them from lending aggressively.
Claude Beglé, Chairman, Swiss Post, Switzerland
China and India have been a crucial engine of growth for the world economy, and continued strong economic growth in these two countries would be vital to help restore market confidence during the global financial meltdown.
S. Sandilya, Chairman, Eicher Group, India
This outstanding reunion is a summit of true leaders. I didn’t expected this year’s Global China Business Meeting to have such a great impact.

Horasis held the fifth Global China Business Meeting in Lisbon on 9-10 November 2009. The meeting was co-hosted by the Portugese government, represented by Aicep and Turismo de Portugal, as well as several Chinese organizations. Over 400 leaders met under the theme "Globalizing Chinese Firms". The theme reflected the increased emphasis of Chinese firms to build global and sustainable brands. The programme offered multiple means to gain insight from and access to business leaders and key government officials.

A further theme of the 2009 Global China Business Meeting was China’s ability to reverse the downward trend in global economic growth. Participants also celebrated the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China and reflected on the success of China's 30 years of economic reforms.

The Global China Business Meeting is the foremost annual gathering of Chinese business leaders and their global counterparts. It is held in the recognition that growth strategies within the Sino-global framework require thought leadership and mutually beneficial peer-to-peer networks. The 2005-2008 meetings - held in Geneva (twice), Frankfurt and Barcelona – were the first independent, international meetings of Chinese and global CEOs to conceptualize Chinese companies' rise to global eminence.
