The 2023 Global Chinese Economic & Technology Summit







Futian Shangri-La, Shenzhen


Great Reset: Powering Growth, Technology and Regional Prosperity

The World Chinese Economic Summit was founded by Tan Sri Lee Kim Yew and Tan Sri Michael Yeoh in 2009. It was first held in the Palace of the Golden Horses, Malaysia and hosted by its Founder and Patron, Tan Sri Lee Kim Yew.

Since then, WCES has been held in Melbourne, Chongqing, London, Melaka, Macao, Beijing, Bonn, and Penang. The Summit emphasized the role of the Global Chinese and connecting the Global Chinese Diaspora as well as promoting learning between East and West.

Resulting from the Global Pandemic and focusing on global recovery, the importance of global partnership, global leadership and global cooperation is imperative. Technology has also become a game changer and a key driver of the global economy – digital technology and innovations, green technology, health technology and agrotechnology will enhance global growth. The growing focus on sustainability also requires technological innovations and solutions.

Recognizing these strategic trends of global geopolitical and geoeconomics forces and the power of global partnerships in this new global era, the WCES has been transformed into the Global Chinese Economic and Technology Summit to strive towards sustainable globalisation. We will strengthen global cooperation and technology partnerships and focus on the 4Ps – Peace, Partnerships, People and Planet for global shared prosperity.

The increasing geopolitical tensions and geoeconomic challenges in a multipolar world requires stronger collaboration and partnerships between China and ASEAN. With rising uncertainty and vulnerabilities forging partnerships can help develop a better world and shared future.
