An intimate conversation with James McGregor
In Hot, Flat, and Crowded, Thomas Friedman compared the Chinese economy to the movie Speed.  China's leaders are trying to replace the motor in a Chinese bus from a gas-guzzling polluter to a superefficient hybridwhile the bus is still going 50 MPH.  Failure to maintain an 8% growth ratewhile simultaneously dealing with the nation's pollution crisiscould lead to so much unemployment and discontent that the population might erupt.

China is an enormous player in cleantech.  To understand the promise of the sector, we must understand China.

We are very pleased, in conjunction with APCO worldwide, to invite you to meet James McGregor, a senior counselor in APCO's Beijing office and a member of APCO's International Advisory Council.   Mr. McGregor will discuss how state capitalism and China's Indigenous Innovation Industrial Policies are changing the game for international business.

James McGregor, former CEO of Dow Jones & Company in China and Wall Street Journal bureau chief in China and Taiwan, has lived in China for more than 20 years. McGregor, a sought-after speaker, specializes in China's business, politics and society and he regularly appears in the media to discuss China-related topics. He is the author of the book One Billion Customers: Lessons from the Front Lines of Doing Business in China.

This will be a very small gathering of senior executives and friends of the WCTA.
