PwC will hold Analyst Day Shanghai at the PwC Innovation Centre on May 23-24, 2018. The event will focus on the firm’s clients’ technology and digital transformation journey in China.
Tomorrow kicks off the two-day PwC Analyst Day Shanghai at the Shanghai Innovation Centre. The day will feature clients and analysts from Gartner, Forrester, IDC, TBR, CapitolIT and Source Global Research. Leaders from PwC China and the PwC global network will join our clients from across China, to showcase the exciting work being done in the areas of digital transformation, blockchain, robotics process automation and other emerging technology areas to fuel digital, business and organizational transformation.
China Business Landscape
On the 40th anniversary of China’s reform and opening up of markets, President Xi announced steps to further China’s commitment to economic globalisation, bolstering investor confidence and creating new business opportunities. In conjunction with this, The People’s Bank of China reinforced the commitment with policies focused on expanding market access and lifting ownership restrictions. This progressive environment continues to create new opportunities for domestic and foreign players in the areas of market competition, channels, products and services, customer experience, and operations. Recognising this expansion in global policy and outlook on the future, PwC has decided to hold this year’s regional Analyst Day in Shanghai, China.

Delegates at PwC’s Analyst Day Shanghai 2018 will hear about how PwC is working with clients in China to pursue exciting new opportunities in the rapidly evolving Chinese business marketplace; and how PwC’s capabilities from strategy through execution are helping clients realise their plans.
