I am very happy to be with you today because I love the China Europe International Business School. This beautiful school has built a bridge between China and Europe. It is very important for Europe and China to discuss the rebalancing of the world economy based on a shared vision, so I am happy to discuss this topic with you. I am currently Charles de Gaulle Professor of Global Leadership at CEIBS. Fifty-five years ago, French head of state Charles de Gaulle decided to establish diplomatic relations with China, and France became the first western country to recognize China.

This is not a move China should emulate. Neither raising the benchmark interest rates for deposits and loans, nor increasing the open-market operation interest rates would bode well for China's current domestic economic and financial situation.

It is conventional to do things conventionally – including partnering. There are certain “obvious” partnering situations we seek out. However, in my research on entrepreneurial partnering, I have come across efforts to go beyond the conventional. I think of this as partnering outside the box.
