From 27 – 29 June 2017, the „Annual Meeting of the New Champions“ of the World Economic Forum is taking place in Dalian, Liaoning province. Technology and innovation issues such as renewable energies and data exchange are in the specific focus of this year’s event. In his speech on June 27, Chinese prime minister Li Keqiang argued the case for free markets and globalisation, a position similar to the remarks made by Chinese president Xi Jinping in Davos at the beginning of this year.
