Lunch with a Punch – Business in China:  Issues, Anecdotes and Prophesies.

Sponsored by CIR and Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce.  Learn about and discuss Beijing’s business from the inside with CIR member David Rubenstein, PhD.  Dr. Rubenstein will address a variety of topics: the current state of China’s economy, China’s responses to the worldwide economic downturn, what it’s like to do business there, anecdotes of doing business in a culture so different from ours, and his informed predictions of Beijing’s next moves to command the world business stage.  The University of Houston economics professor has taught at Chinese business schools for many years and has seen how this managed economy has turned itself into a business giant.

Price for Lunch with a Punch – $32 each.  Reservations and payment due by Thursday, May 28 only by calling the Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce office, 988-3279.
