    Pamela Mar, the World Economic Forum’s associate director for China, will review key insights from this year’s China Business Summit (Sept 12-13), focusing on how China has engaged the international diplomatic and business world. Increasingly, China has adopted a very nuanced view of “soft” and “hard” power. The China Business Summit is one example of how China has used “soft” power to spread its influence. The annual meeting is a striking metaphor and guide to how China will reach out to the international community, and absorb foreign entrants into its own economy in the future.
    Pamela Mar overseas China activities and relationships for the World Economic Forum. She is responsible for the annual China Business Summit and for relations with Chinese companies, ministries and other institutions.

    She is programme manager for the East Asia Economic Summit and helps to manage related initiatives and publishing projects in East Asia.

    Pamela graduated from Yale University with highest honors, and distinctions in both Philosophy and East Asian Studies; and holds a Masters of Management with honors from the London School of Economics.
