Rt. Hon. Robert J. L. Hawk,
Former Australian Prime Minister
Global Chairman, Asia-Pacific CEO Association
Dear Sir or Madam:
At the end of this year two highly prestigious events will take place in China. The First Global Outsourcing Summit and
the Third International Cooperation Summit for Asia-Pacific CEOs & Provincial Governors and Mayors will successively
hold their grand openings in Tianjin, northern China’s largest coastal city, and Guangzhou, one of southern China’s
most important and economically developed cities.
The overall aim of the Third International Cooperation Summit for Asia-Pacific CEOs & Provincial Governors and Mayors is
to establish and leverage an effective long-term cooperative mechanism between outstanding business leaders and high-level
government officials. The previous two summits won active participation and great support from government officials, statesmen,
business leaders and provincial governors and mayors of different countries. Previous summits were successfully held in the
Chinese cities of Beijing and Wuxi, sponsored by the Asia-Pacific CEOs Association, the Ministry of Commerce and the Wuxi
Municipal Government. This year the summit will be held in the Chinese city of Guangzhou, sponsored by the Guangzhou
Municipal Government, and will exceed the previous two in its depth and width of coverage.
In recent years we have witnessed the growing importance of international outsourcing, and this key sector now offers a range
of lucrative opportunities for developed countries, developing countries, multinationals and local companies. According to the
statistics from the searching website like Google and Baidu, “outsourcing” has been the hottest economic issue all over the
world this year. Outsourcing is considered the most important business philosophy and management practice to have emerged
over the last seventy-five years by the Harvard Business Review...
As a rapidly developing hub for finance, trade and foreign direct investment, and an authorized base city for service outsourcing,
Tianjin has formulated a range of beneficial policies on land, tax, and human resources in preparation for its increasingly important
role in the outsourcing sector. It is for the above reasons that the Tianjin Municipal Government, together with the Asia-Pacific CEO
Association and the International Outsourcing Centre, are co-sponsoring this Summit in 2007.
The summit objectives are to establish a viable platform for international outsourcing, to bring together global outsourcing
resources, and to facilitate the integration and development of the global service industry.
For your added convenience we have arranged for the two summits to be held on successive dates over the period of December
10th to 14th. Of course, if your schedule is tight, you may choose to participate in only one of them.
This is a high-profile meeting for global leaders in their fields to communicate and cooperate, and constitutes a great platform for
establishing partnerships with key representatives from over Chinese twenty provinces and municipalities.
The Municipal Government of Tianjin, the Municipal Government of Guangzhou, the Asia-Pacific CEO Association, and the
International Outsourcing Center extend you their warmest wishes and greatly hope that you will be able to participate in these
