At the kind invitation of the Chongqing Municipal Government, and on behalf of the organizer, the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, Automotive Committee, I am pleased to invite you to attend the Sixth Annual Global Automotive Forum (the “GAF2015”) which takes place on June 9-10, 2015 in Chongqing, China.
In 2009, China's auto sales reached 13 million vehicles surpassing every other country and making it the largest auto market in the world. At that time, there were several automotive conferences addressing the domestic market but there were none that offered a global perspective. The Global Automotive Forum (“GAF”) was launched in 2010 and successfully filled that gap. The GAF was the first of its kind and it was created to serve as a communication platform for domestic and global industry professionals to discuss the challenges and opportunities surrounding the industry.
The global economic recovery since the financial crises in 2008 has been slow and difficult, with the outlook of major economies growing divergent. Downward pressure on China's economy keeps mounting, compounded by numerous difficulties and challenges. At the very same time, information technology is spawning another industrial revolution worldwide forcing the traditional auto industry to enter into an era of restructuring. How are we as an industry responding to the profound changes taking place? The topics at this year’s forum, Mega Change: Reshaping an Industry, were designed to provide industry leaders, experts and policy makers a platform to communicate their unique insights into the developments impacting the industry.
The Global Automotive Form has become a major annual event for industry leaders around the world. Its vigor and success have helped to establish its excellent reputation across the industry and it is now widely regarded as the most important, high-level, global automotive conference in China.
We hope that you will join us in Chongqing on June 9-10, 2015 to participate in this important discussion.
