Dear Reader,

Chinese New Year begins on February 3rd. Will China continue to climb the competitiveness ladder in the upcoming year? IMD Professor Winter Nie and IMD World Competitiveness Center Deputy Director Suzanne Rosselet look at this topic in IMD's latest Great Debate feature.

Anticipating future business trends, such as China's rise and impact on the global economy, is part of the reason why hundreds of executives attend IMD's Orchestrating Winning Performance every June. Along with benefiting from a unique global network, participants will also have the opportunity to interact with keynote speakers such as Jean-Claude Biver, Hublot CEO, and Lord Sebastian Coe, Chairman of the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games. Learn more about the program.

Enjoy the first Webletter of 2011.
Best regards,
The IMD Webletter Team
