Christie’s Hong Kong auctions hit record numbers last March – bringing in a stunning $332.7 million in all, for important Chinese classical paintings, porcelains, bronzes and furniture from private collections. The high prices reflected what the auction house called “deep bidding” from buyers in mainland China. It wasn’t the first time Chinese buyers have stunned the Chinese classical art market. Remember the tiny “chicken cup” that fetched a record $36 million at a Hong Kong auction in 2014? The buyer, of course, was Chinese, a prolific art collector named Liu Yiqian. He celebrated his Ming Dynasty purchase by drinking tea from it. Come hear Cai Jinqing, President of Christie’s China, share her insights on China’s high-flying collectors and the burgeoning Chinese art market.

Executive Summit 2018

April 12, 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM
Featuring Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson, Jr.; Former Chairman of China Banking Regulatory Commission Mingkang Liu; Nobel Prize-winning Economist Joseph Stiglitz; and top U.S. and Chinese business leaders and policy makers.
Location: Harvard Club of New York City

In this complex new era for U.S.-China business relations, China Institute’s Executive Summit 2018, “U.S.-China Business in the New World Order,” will examine opportunities and challenges on the ground, far from policymakers in the respective capitals.

Historically, business has been the ballast that has anchored the U.S.-China relationship during difficult times. Frustration is rising on both sides, and there is growing concern about the overall health of the bilateral relationship. At this day-long conference, you will learn about risks—from capital controls to the specter of a trade war—and find opportunities, from AI to green technologies and biotech, in the U.S.-China business landscape. In-depth panel discussions will provide insights to inform better policies, smarter deals, and ultimately, a more nuanced understanding of today’s China.

This Summit will help business executives, thought leaders, and policy makers make smarter decisions today and prepare for tomorrow.
