On the 14th May 2019, the Global High-end Manufacturing Summit (GHMS) opened in Changsha, China, with the theme of “High Quality Economy – Better Life”. GHMS hosted business leaders, government officials, distinguished experts and scholars, well-known international investors, financiers from more than 60 countries and regions. The participants discussed frontier issues of high-end manufacturing and development.
Annette Nijs, former Cabinet Minister of Education, Culture and Science of the Netherlands and also the Chair of Global Executive Board of BSN, attended the conference and gave keynote speech titled “Moving towards a 21st Century with Chinese Characteristics” as Summit Leaders. In her speech, she said that in the current context of countries seeking more economic sovereignty and protection of their innovative competitiveness, it is more than feasible to still transfer technology, to have global supply chains and advance together in the 21st century. She proposed four technology transfer models with a high potential, namely, technology providers, interworking on a tech platform, tech transfer hubs and tech transfer for national interest.
“I would love to enhance cooperation between Chinese and Dutch companies, if possible”, she said in an interview after the speech.
