The Asia Society Hong Kong Center is pleased to announce a Corporate Briefing with Xu Sitao, Chief Representative for The Economist Group in China and Director of Advisory Services for the Economist Intelligence Unit since 2004. A trained economist, he also provides research and analysis on China for the Economist Corporate Network across Asia, and is frequently called upon to advise multinational companies seeking to understand and navigate China's macroeconomic and industry shifts.
Xu was previously the Hong Kong-based Head of Economics for ICBC (Asia), the international flagship of China's largest bank. Prior to that, he was Chief Economist for Asia (ex-Japan) for Societe Generale and Regional Treasury Economist for Standard Chartered Bank. Xu has been a columnist for Caijing and 21st Century, China's leading business publications and contributes frequently to leading regional and international publications, such as the Asian Wall Street Journal and Financial Times. He received his B.A. in Economics from Peking University, M.A. in Economics from the University of Connecticut and M.S. in Finance from Boston College.
The Corporate Briefings are intended to be fairly small events in order to encourage more discussion between the speaker and guests.
