According to the consulting committee conference, the second Qingdao Multinationals Summit will provide a high-end platform for enterprises seeking long-term development in China to understand major domestic policies, investment environment and market changes, and deepen their exchanges and cooperation with their Shandong counterparts.
The summit will help multinational corporations find more opportunities to participate in China's 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-25) and the country's dual-circulation development strategy.
The summit will focus on issues related to the development of transnational corporations in the post-pandemic era, the new development pattern of transnational corporations in China, and the new trend of transnational corporations' investment.
