Resilience and Reinvention

The 2021 UBC China Forum will be held in March as a four-day online conference with four industry-specific panels, including E-Commerce, Ventures, Technology, and International Relations. With the theme of ‘Resilience and Reinvention,’ the forum will be a convocation of aspiring students, professionals, and scholars from both countries to discuss the present and future of China’s socio-economic development and its interaction with Canada.

 

The 2019 UBC China Forum’s acclaimed speakers came from all walks of life and were the best in their fields. For the 2021 UBC China Forum, students and attendees will have an even better opportunity to learn from world-class leaders and experts as they share their journeys online.

Our Mission

The UBC China Forum aspires to become the most influential China-Canada conference in the nation, acting as a strong link of trade promotion between the two countries and a gateway of business cooperation. Organized by the UBC BizChina Club, the event is entirely student-run and independent of political influence. The UBC China Forum serves as an international platform for students, academics, and professionals to exchange ideas and hold in-depth discussions on business trends in China. Keynotes are addressed by internationally renowned leaders, and panel discussions include experts in their respective fields. This is one of our key steps in adding value to the professional development of the next generation of business leaders.

 

We believe that the UBC China Forum can become a bridge between the East and the West to stimulate the exchange of business ideas as well as be the ideal platform for information-sharing so that people can acquire a better and more impartial understanding of China.

E-COMMERCE

In recent years, many disruptive innovations have stemmed from E-Commerce. With the internet’s integration into our daily lives, E-Commerce allows us to take part in business without physical boundaries. We already enjoy benefits such as low costs and high efficiencies, but there remains much unexplored potential.

TECHNOLOGY

The global pandemic and economic crisis have made most institutional and individual investors more cautious than ever. However, at the same time, the emergence of a vast number of innovations means new opportunities. Moving forward in 2021, how should investors make decisions? We shall discuss how China and Canada's financial sectors will overcome difficulties and seize new changes in the new era.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS

China’s advancement and Chinese diplomacy in the 21st century requires a multi-narrative understanding. How can China and Canada’s relationship be strengthened despite their differences in foreign policy and ideology? As Sino-Canadian relations are at a freezing point, we will examine if Canada considers China as an equal or a strategic competitor.

Ventures
