September Session

Title: The Status and Prospect of Automobile Industry - New Energy Vehicles

China has been the world biggest car market since 2009. The massive growth of private cars has led to environmental, transportation and energy issues in this country. To address these issues and achieve the societal sustainability, China identified the New Energy Vehicles (NEVs) as one of seven strategically emerging industries in 2012. In the China Manufacturing 2025 Strategy, NEV is also one of the major development sectors. Since 2010, various levels of Chinese governments have started to incentivize the purchase and use of NEVs. In 2018, China was leading the global NEV market, with about 1.25 million NEVs sold in total. However, in spite of the strategic importance of NEV sectors for the automobile industry in China and the world, the majority demand for NEVs is still driven by the government incentives such as subsidy and tax rebate. In this Suzhou Executive Academy (SEA) event, invited speakers from the academic and industry fields are going to discuss the current status and future prospect of the automobile industry, particularly the future of NEV sector from diversified perspectives, such as marketing, business model and technology development. Guests are also welcome to participate into the discussion and networking activities.
