In 2013, China had taken steps to liberalize restrictions on interest rates, a move that may have signified serious reform in its inefficient financial system and a more rational allocation of capital. The reform already included efforts to increase lending to the private sector and venture business. At this event, 阿尔曼赞德, Head of Technology and Finance at SPD Silicon Valley Bank in Shanghai, analyzed these challenges and opportunities, while also exploring some of the highs and lows of doing business in a fluctuating economic and social environment.


September 27-29, 2013

BCLB hosted a panel assessing the dramatic change in business law that reflects significant new regulations, standards, laws, and conventions that have emerged in response to the financial and economic crises of the first decade of the 21st Century.

本次活动只能通过邀请. Co-sponsored by the 卓越的欧盟中心 and the 米勒研究所的全球性挑战和法律

Agenda>                         Materials Discussed>          

The workshop focuses on the challenges that increased global competition poses for financial regulation, and the concerns that growing financial markets raise for the safety and soundness of the U.S. and global financial system. U.S. financial institutions had long dominated international markets by developing international networks of clients and providing companies around the world with access to U.S. stock exchanges. However, increased globalization brought new challenges for U.S. regulators and policymakers. The last decade saw a wave of new financial centers, from London to Hong Kong and from Frankfurt to Shanghai, which challenge the U.S. markets’ preeminence in financial services. European stalwarts and emerging economies alike compete fiercely with the 美国, diverting new capital away from American businesses, attracting thousands of jobs, and depriving tax revenue from the U.S. government.

China’s first comprehensive competition statute, the Antimonopoly Law, took effect on August 1, 2008. Since then, China has emerged as a significant antitrust jurisdiction as its competition authorities have blocked or imposed conditions on worldwide mergers, fined foreign cartels, and even challenged the commercial practices of some state-owned enterprises. Mr. Bush, a partner in the Beijing and Singapore office of O’Melveny & Myers, will assess the first five years of Chinese antitrust enforcement under the AML and future directions of Chinese competition policy under the new Xi Jinping government.
