BEIJING, CHINA ─ November 8, 2010O’Melveny & Myers LLP partner Howard Chao will be a featured speaker at A World Summit: The Ascent of China’s Capital Markets, which is being presented by International Finance News, a division of People’s Daily, China’s official government newspaper. The invitation-only event will be held November 10, 2010, at the China World Summit Wing in Beijing’s Shangri-La Hotel.


Chao, the Chair of O’Melveny’s Asia Practice, will join executives from private equity, asset management, and investment banking companies to discuss the growth of China’s capital markets in the next decade. Chao will speak on how China can expand relations with both emerging and dominant economies of the world, while avoiding key pitfalls of international business.


The 2010 World Summit will highlight the growth and development of China’s capital markets and the country’s growing role in global financial markets. The speakers will address ways to strengthen China’s investment in the United Kingdom, the rise of initial public offerings on the Shanghai Stock Exchange, and the expansion of China’s bond market. O’Melveny, which has five offices in Asia and is a leading international law firm in the region, joins 400 senior-level government officials, business leaders, and institutional investors at the exclusive one-day event.
