Boao Forum For Asia Annual Conference 2013 #China #BoaoForum #Hainan

Running 6-8 April this year, the non-government, non-profit Boao platform facilitates a convergence of leading minds, not just political leaders only, for discourse and exchange. In some ways, this forum, running since 1998 is an Asia-Pacific equivalent of Davos.

That it is on China’s turf at the dawn of its new leadership is something the Chinese milk fully. Regional leaders, along with their top business and academic minds now arrive as guests in their home ground. President Xi Jinping gives the keynote address on Sunday.

Check out the Boao forum website here.

The conference agenda (.doc) can be found here.
