(Yicai Global) Jan. 17 -- Yicai Media Group will once again work with the World Economic Forum to present television debates. Figure Currency: The Crypto-Asset Bubble will air starting 6:00 pm on Jan. 25. in Switzerland (1:00 am Jan. 26 Beijing Time).
Distinguished guests will engage in a dialog on speculative behavior, check-and-balance mechanisms, risks, supervision, opportunities and challenges related to digital currencies.
Some 2,500 leaders from politics, business, academia and the media will convene in Davos to discuss how to create shared value in a fractured world from Jan. 23 to Jan. 26.
Yicai Global and the Davos Forum invited Robert J. Shiller, a Nobel laureate and professor of economics at Yale University, Cecilia Skingsley, deputy governor of the Bank of Sweden, Zhu Min, dean of the National Institute of Finance at Tsinghua University, Neil Rimer, general partner and co-founder of Index Ventures and Jennifer Zhu Scott, founding partner of Radian Partners, to discuss the reality and future of digital currencies and the risks and regulation of financial technology.
Yang Yanqing, deputy editor-in-chief of China Business News and managing director of the Yicai Research Institute, will moderate their talks.
Some 60 heads of state or leaders of government including US President Donald Trump, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May will attend this year's forum. That figure is higher than those of previous years.
Liu He, a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China's Political Bureau and director of the Central Financial Leading Group Office, will also attend the annual meeting.
Given Liu's role in understanding China's economic and financial markets, people will be keen to hear his views to gain insight into China's future, David Aikman, the World Economic Forum's chief economist for Greater China, told Yicai Global.
"I must say that there will be a lot of enthusiasm among attendees to hear his speech and we have received a lot of requests to schedule meetings with him," Aikman said.
The second day of the event is China Day. Topics related to China scheduled for the day include Liu's speech and a luncheon themed China: Opening-Up for Prosperity.
