The 2013 Fortune Global Forum, a prestigious world business summit, will be held in the southwest Chinese city of Chengdu in June 2013, organizers announced Monday.
The forum, running from June 6 to 8, will bring the CEOs of the world's biggest multinational companies, entrepreneurs and scholars to China for an event themed "China's New Future."
Andy Serwer, managing editor of U.S.-based Fortune Magazine, said China has an emerging role to play in the world market and noted the dramatic growth of the country's western region.
Delegates will share deep insights into new trends in today's complex global economy and glimpse its future, he added.
It will be the fourth time China gets to host the forum, initiated in 1995 by Fortune Magazine. Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Beijing have held the annual gathering previously, in 1999, 2001, and 2005 respectively.
