Executives Dialogue

Deloitte China CXO Program

Herman Van Rompuy, Former President of the European Council; and Fu Chengyu, Former Chairman of SINOPEC

2018 has proven to be a bumpy ride on the back of surging geopolitical uncertainty, rising populism in the West, and ongoing Sino-US trade tensions. Amid this whirlpool of international events, Europe and China have found themselves standing more together to safeguard the multilateral trade system against the protectionist headwinds. Some questions of interest therefore arise:

  • Do trade tensions between China and the US represent any structural shift in Sino-US relations? How does Europe position itself?
  • China's investment into Europe. What are the prospects, opportunities and challenges?
  • China's energy transition: effects on global climate and sustainable development.

Mr. Herman Van Rompuy, President of the European Council from 2009-2014, and former Prime Minister of Belgium, is one of very few who could shed light on these questions given his vast experience on European Affairs especially relations between Europe and other regions.

Mr. Fu Chengyu, former Chairman of SINOPEC, has a wealth of experience in Energy & Resources industry and in-depth insights on trade and cross-border investment.

On July 16, Deloitte China will invite Mr. Van Rompuy and Mr. Fu Chengyu to join a chat moderated by Chief Economist & Partner Mr. Xu Sitao, in close discussion with policymakers and business executives.
