BFA Holds its 3rd Member and Partner Activity in 2017





On July 28, 2017, the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) organized the 3rd member activity of this year—a visit to Microsoft China Center One (MCCO).

In the two-hour activity, member representatives and their family members, led by the guide, were introduced to the latest R&D developments of Microsoft in Asia-Pacific and built a knowledge of how technology will change the way we live in the future. In the end, participants also enjoyed a hands-on experience of Microsoft’s most recent technologies.

Microsoft Asia-Pacific R&D Group was established in 2006. Located on the Beijing campus of the Group, MCCO has become a window to showcase Microsoft’s technology achievements, including cutting-edge technologies and dozens of applications ranging from cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, mixed reality and smart hardware. It is also an important platform that provides insights on industry trends, inspiration for innovation and collaboration, as well as knowledge of technological progress. 

This is the first activity organized by the BFA to strengthen familial bonds. Nearly 40 representatives of BFA members and partners as well as their family members participated in this member club activity, which allowed them to experience the beauty of technology first hand.
