China’s CEOs face a number of headwinds, as do their global counterparts. With a volatile global economic outlook and ongoing US-China trade tensions, these uncertainties are bound to have some impact on overall business sentiment.
KPMG’s latest report summarises the China findings from a global survey of 1,300 CEOs – including 125 from companies headquartered in mainland China and Hong Kong (China CEOs) – across a wide range of industries, providing insights into investment priorities, growth strategies, and key concerns.
The survey findings suggest that despite the rapidly changing business environment as a result of both domestic and external developments, China CEOs are confident in the resilience of their companies, and in their ability to innovate, disrupt and adapt. They are also proactively thinking about investing in new technologies to be ahead of the competition; and are placing increasing importance to partnering in order to achieve their growth objectives.
