This year's summit will include a series of branded events, including the opening ceremony, the main forum, several break-out sessions, guest dialogues and business-to-business matchmaking meetings, covering the gamut of industries in which the two countries excel and have a deep interest, including smart manufacturing, the digital economy, intellectual property, bio-medicine, smart cities, among others.
