An evening with Professor Jørgen Delman: Xiong An New Area - The dream city of politics, business and technology in China

24 Oct
An evening with Professor Jørgen Delman: Xiong An New Area - The dream city of politics, business and technology in China

In April 2017 president Xi Jinping announced the plans for Xiong An New Area - China's new green innovation Mecca. In the green freshwater wetlands south of Beijing a new smart city is about to rise as a shining political symbol implicating China's role as a green and innovative front runner. This massive city planning project raises a series of question like: What political motives lies behind? What are the implications of 'smart cities'? And lastly, what are the opportunities for Nordic companies in Xiong An?

The Danish Chamber of Commerce in China, Beijing, would like to invite you to an evening discussion with our three experts to uncover the political, technological and commercial/business related aspects of the Xiong An New Area. Lane Li from OHW tech inc. will kick off the discussions with an over all insight to the planning of Xiong An and will touch upon the opportunities for Nordic companies in Xiong An.

Jørgen Delman, Professor, China Studies, University of Copenhagen, will discuss Xiongan's development in its political context and how it makes sense from an urban development perspective. Casper Wichmann from ThinkChina will provide insights on smart cities in China and how A.I plays a part in urban planning and development.
