Cross Borders to Go Global

On the evening of March 22, the BFA secretariat held its second member club activity of this year during the BFA Annual Conference 2016—Be a Borderless Company: How to Become an Excellent Global Company.

Moderated by Tiger Hu, Anchor from Phoenix TV, the session convened a distinguished panel, including Kasper Jakobsen, CEO of Mead Johnson; Scott Price, Chief Administration Officer, President and CEO of Asia, Walmart; Michael Treschow, Chairman of Unilever; Gao Jifan, Chairman and CEO of Trina Solar; Hans-Paul Burkner, Chairman of the Boston Consulting Group; Li Jiange, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Sun Yefang Foundation, Vice Chairman of Central Huijin Investment Co., Ltd. and Co-Dean of the National Institute of Financial Research, Tsinghua University; and Xiang Bing, Founding Dean of Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business. The panelists addressed the topic of “globalization of companies” from various perspectives.

In an increasingly globalized world, European and American multinationals are early movers in globalizing their operations, while Chinese companies are also accelerating their pace to go global. Led by the moderator, the panelists shared their experience and perspectives on the following dimensions: the conditions for a company to become borderless; what company can be considered borderless; localization of a borderless company; and the importance of talent to a borderless company.

This member club activity was attended by over 150 participants, including those from member companies and the media.
