On December 9-10, 2021, EqualOcean will be holding the World Innovators Meet 2021 (WIM2021) conference. As a part of WIM2021, China & The World Summit will be focusing on the world's second-largest economy's global impact and interaction with the rest of the world.

 WIM 2021 China & The World Summit is built around two major topics: 

Ⅰ. Investing in China: Seeking value amid global turbulence.

Ⅱ. Localization & Globalization: Global enterprises' 'China story' and Chinese companies' global expansion.

I. Investing in China: Seeking value amid global turbulence

Over the past decade, China has been an attractive investment destination. But will it remain one in years to come? WIM 2021 gathers global investors, senior executives, and market participants to discuss this and other questions concerning the world's second-largest economy's past, present and future.

World Innovators Meet (WIM) is a yearly flagship event hosted by EqualOcean for the past 6 years. It is a time where international delegates gather to discuss hot button topics in China's key industries.

We see innovation as the biggest driving force to building a better world. Hence, through WIM we seek to create a platform for global innovators to connect. By uniting bright minds, we seek to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and inspire conversations that matter.

In a short span of 6 years, WIM has grown from a local event in China to a global event that bridges the world and China by bringing together 1,500+ international speakers (including several Nobel laureates), 50,000 global attendees, and 2,000+ media and community partners.
