On October 7, 2014, the International Monetary Fund announced that China had surpassed the United States as the world’s largest economy, a distinction held by the US since 1873 when it overtook Great Britain. This global phenomenon is not well understood and is fraught with opportunities and challenges. In 2012, China became one of the largest global investors, according to the joint statistic report by the Ministry of Commerce, the National Bureau of Statistics, and the
State Administration of Foreign Exchange in China. Outward FDI amounted to USD 87.8 billion. At the end of 2012, 16,000 Chinese investors had set up nearly 22,000 overseas enterprises in 179 countries and regions. Despite the impressive growth in foreign direct investment flows from China, the stock of foreign investment held by Chinese investors, compared to the size of the Chinese economy and the size of the total world investment, is still relatively small. This means that the growth of outward foreign direct investment from China is likely to continue its turbo-charged acceleration.

Many questions arise with the rise of China and its transnational companies, both state-owned and private. What are the motivations of Chinese state-owned enterprises? How are different firm configurations and industries internationalizing? What role will Chinese firms and government play in
the future value-added chain of production and consumption? How will the rise of China affect bilateral and multi-lateral international relations? How will institutions evolve in response to changing governance, nationally and internationally? The answers to these questions and others can be can
be derived from different analytical frameworks deriving from various disciplines: economics, international business, political science, sociology and public policy. Research is also sought from the various business disciplines: strategy, operations finance, marketing. We invite multi-d sciplinary
outlooks and analyses of the globalization of China.

Three distinctive features of annual conference and, specifically, the forthcoming 9th annual conference of China goes Global need to be highlighted. First, the conference is developmental in nature and we invite collaboration, constructive feedback, panel discussions, and mentoring. Best papers are also given the chance to be published in the International Journal of Emerging Markets,
a scopus ranked journal by Emerald. The conference will have both posters and competitive papers to accommodate papers with different levels of development. Second, we have fun. In addition to insightful paper, the conference also includes a reception, a performance, company visit, and great people. For the review of CGA 2014 conference, including photo gallery, please see:
