On December 7 2022 KIELTYKA GLADKOWSKI KG LEGAL will take part in the Discussion on “The New World Order: The Implications of Rising US – China Friction “– a panel with INSEAD and WSJ senior journalists.

The panel gives a great opportunity to learn more about the current political state concerning the two economic giants. It is certain, that the discussion will cover most crucial issues and answer many important questions such as: Are we entering a new Cold War? To what extent will the US and Chinese economies decouple? What are the long-term ripple effects of China’s zero-Covid policy for the rest of the world? What are the possible scenarios for Taiwan, and what could that mean for the balance of power in Asia?

The event is organised by INSEAD in partnership with The Wall Street Journal.

INSEAD (“Institut Européen d’Administration des Affaires”) is one of the world’s leading and largest graduate non-profit business schools. It has locations all over the world – in Europe (France), Asia (Singapore), the Middle East (Abu Dhabi) and North America (San Francisco). INSEAD emphasizes international collaboration from day one. Therefore, the school imposes a quota on percentage of students with the same nationality. Proficiency in multiple languages is also considered a critical enabler for its objectives.

INSEAD was founded in 1957 by venture capitalist Georges Doriot, Claude Janssen, and Olivier Giscard d’Estaing. Original seed money was provided by the Paris Chamber of Commerce. The school was originally based in the Château de Fontainebleau, before moving to its current Europe campus in 1967.

One of the school’s programs – Master of Business Administration (MBA) is consistently ranked among the best in the world. The MBA has produced the second most CEOs of the 500 largest companies, after only Harvard Business School’s, and the sixth most billionaires. INSEAD is among the top 20 universities globally that produced the most of the world’s ultra-high-net-worth individuals.

The Wall Street Journal is one of the largest newspapers in the United States. The Journal has been printed continuously since its inception on July 8, 1889, by Charles Dow, Edward Jones, and Charles Bergstresser. The newspaper has won 38 Pulitzer Prizes, the most recent in 2019.

The event consists of a panel discussion with experts at The Wall Street Journal and INSEAD. The panelists are: Josh Chin and Michael Witt. The panel itself will be opened by Yumiko Ono, a senior editor at The Wall Street Journal.
