Guangzhou–China’s Southern gateway to the world–is the ideal location for the 2017 Fortune Global Forum.

As the capital city of China’s most populous province, at the heart of the Pearl River Delta region, Guangzhou offers extraordinary opportunities to multinationals and is already home to more than half the Global 500 companies.
