Hosted by Stan Lepeak, Global Research Director,
KPMG LLP Management Consulting


Are organizations in China exploring artificial intelligence and cognitive computing with the same fervor as those in other countries? To what extent are geopolitical issues impacting Chinese businesses? What industries are thriving in China, the world’s fastest growing consumer market, in spite or because of enormous disruption?

To answer these questions and more, Stan Lepeak recently sat down with Egidio (Edge) Zarrella, a Hong Kong-based KPMG partner, to discuss:

  • The top positive and negative trends Chinese businesses will face in 2018
  • Why China views an aging population in a far more positive light than other countries do (hint: it has to do with the contribution their greater buying power makes to the country’s massive retail and e-commerce industry)
  • Why Chinese businesses are struggling with trying to digitalize traditional operations and too-few mathematicians and engineers.
