New Cooperation among Emerging Markets - China / India / Middle East

BEIJING, Nov. 7 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- BusinessWeek's Eleventh Annual CEO Forum brought together 700 global entrepreneurs for discussions on challenges and strategies to help companies stay on the fast track in hyper-competitive markets. The Forum, co-hosted with Boao Forum for Asia, opened today in Beijing with the theme "Staying on the Fast Track: Leadership, Innovation, Performance".
