Thursday, October 10 –  Playing Silk Road Games:
Chinese Business Strategies from Central Asia to Eastern Europe

10:00 am 105 W. Madison Street, 17th floor Chicago
NIU’s Downtown Chicago Location
Dr. Dirk Linowski will discuss Chinese business strategies from Central Asia to Eastern Europe during a seminar sponsored by the Central Asian Productivity Research Center, in cooperation with Northern Illinois University’s College of Business-Global Programs. Professor Linowski commented: “There are now numerous considerations on a system competition with references to subsidized
Chinese monopolies and area-wide monitoring (keyword “point system”). Interestingly, the so called 16 or 17+1 format, in which China conducts bilateral negotiations with small East and Central European states, is less important in the media. However, it is part of the Chinese economic and socio-political global strategy, as it is as relevant for the EU as it is for the US that China (unlike Russia) is practically sitting around the table with the EU. Referring to a few specific visible principles, China plays open here, as it does in Central Asia, the Caucasian areas, Africa, and even in parts of the Caribbean. Along with the grand scheme of Chinese history, markets are the “handmaidens” of the state. Impacts on possible Western responses and real business applications will be discussed with the audience.”
This free invent is sponsored by the Central Asian Productivity Research Center (CAPRC). While there is no registration fee, because of limited seating, registration is recommended. CAPRC 5220 Ellington Ave. Western Springs, IL 50558.

Friday, Oct. 11 CAPRC FOCUS ON RISKS AND OPPORTUNITIES IN CHINESE MAINLAND STOCKS
11:30am followed by lunch at noon
Evergreen Restaurant  2411 S. Wentworth Ave., Chicago.
Dr. Dirk Linowski, well known for his experience in international finance and an annual lecturer in China, Mongolia, Latvia, and Germany, will discuss “Risks and Opportunities of Investments in Chinese Mainland Stocks”
during a luncheon session, sponsored by the Central Asian Productivity Research Center’s finance and economic committee.
His presentation will open with a short review of Deng Xiaoping’s opening policy before discussing the development of the Chinese stock markets in Shanghai and Shenzhen. Referring to some fundamental civilization characteristics of China, it will be shown that the stock markets fulfill different objectives for the Chinese Central government.  As a step toward a discussion, some considerations on the (limited) usefulness of Western corporate governance measures as to the MSCI-world-index policy will finish the presentation.
