The Chinese Finance Association (TCFA) is pleased to announce that the 20th TCFA Annual Conference entitled “U.S. and China in a Shifting Global Economic Order: A Finance Perspective at TCFA’s 20th Anniversary” will be held on Sunday, November 9th, 2014 at the New York Hilton Midtown in New York City.

This TCFA signature event provides an outstanding platform for industry leaders, academic experts, government regulators, and TCFA members to share thoughts on the latest developments in the global economy and the financial markets. This year’s conference will highlight the challenges faced by China and other emerging economies for continued growth; the increasing tension in geopolitical environment; and heightened pressure between the U.S. and China to collaborate on major global issues, given the still gradually recovering U.S. economy.
