The 2020 World Chinese Economic Summit




Hotel Istana Kuala Lumpur City Centre


"Connecting Business, Promoting Shared Prosperity and Sustainability in the Post COVID New Economy"

The World Chinese Economic Forum was founded by its Patron, Tan Sri Lee Kim Yew and Organising Chairman, Tan Sri Michael Yeoh 11 years ago in Kuala Lumpur. Since then, the Forum has been held in Chongqing, China, Hong Kong, London, Melbourne, Kuala Lumpur and Malacca in Malaysia.

This year the Forum is re-branded as the World Chinese Economic Summit (WCES) to refocus on the importance of business as a driver of sustainable economic growth and as builders of bridges across communities, nations and cultures. The partnership between Government, Business, Think Tanks and Scholars is a key priority for the WCES which provides a meeting of minds for Entrepreneurs, Strategists and Government Officials.

The WCES promotes entrepreneurship, smart partnerships, the digital economy, connectivity and green growth. It also aims to connect the East and West and the Global Chinese Diaspora.

This year the WCES comes back to Malaysia. As the world begins its long journey towards recovery in the aftermath of the global COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s theme of “CONNECTING BUSINESS, PROMOTING SHARED PROSPERITY AND SUSTAINABILITY IN THE POST COVID NEW ECONOMY” is indeed apt and timely. Leveraging this moment of crisis, when usual policies and social norms have been disrupted, bold steps can steer the world back on track towards an inclusive and sustainable economic growth. Now is the time for a change, for a profound systemic shift to a more sustainable economy that works for both people and the planet. Well-being, sustainability and economic prosperity - we need to connect the dots and address issues collectively rather than pitting them against one another is key to creating a better future, a more prosperous and sustainable future.
