PHILADELPHIA, Pa - On Thursday, March 3, 2016, the World Trade Center of Greater Philadelphia and Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business co-hosted the 13th Annual Global Business Conference (GBC). This year’s standing-room-only event – attended by more than 200 executives, government officials, academic leaders and others - focused on “A Changing World Market: Challenges and Opportunities.”
The conference featured an interview-style keynote with Governor Jon Huntsman, former U.S. Ambassador to China and Singapore and former U.S. Trade Ambassador, in conversation with Gillian Tett, U.S. Managing Editor of the Financial Times, in which Governor Huntsman shared his experience-based views on global markets and how he predicts the Chinese economy will affect markets worldwide.
