  Business leaders are keenly waiting to hear key policymakers' thoughts on their economicstrategies, as well as their views on how to better recognize and adjust to the challenges posedby new technologies, in the Summer Davos Forum.

  This year's forum, which will be held from Sunday to Tuesday in Tianjin, carries the theme "TheFourth Industrial Revolution and Its Transformational Impact".

  That theme will serve as guidance and a view of the future, as well as looking at newexpectations for global economic development, according to Tianjin Mayor Huang Xingguo.

  Jing Ulrich, managing director and vice-chairwoman of Asia Pacific at JPMorgan Chase & Co,said she hoped policymakers at the forum would take a keen interest in discussing new ideasand measures to resuscitate the global economy, which is still growing at a slow pace.

  "Many economies have become too reliant on central banks to generate growth. Effective fiscalpolicies and supply-side measures need to be used in tandem with monetary stimulus to producethe best possible growth outcome," said Ulrich.

  Zhang Shishi, president of New Finance Group, a peer-to-peer lending and wealth managementcompany, said the Chinese government has deepened reforms of the financial regulatory systemand has started to standardize and further develop internet-based financing, moves which haveplayed an important role in the country's economic life.

  Zhang added that he is hoping for more policy messages from the forum.

  Bernhard Kotanko, a partner in global management consulting firm Oliver Wyman, said that inrecent years the Summer Davos Forum in China has become a premier platform for globaldiscourse about the transformation of China and its effects on the global economy and society.

  Business leaders are also expecting to learn about ways to better recognize and use newtechnologies in the Forth Industrial Revolution, characterized by the speed of technologicalinnovation and digital transformation of many industries.
