BEIJING, Sept. 14 (Xinhuanet) -- The fourth Summer Davos session has officially opened in north China's coastal city of Tianjin. Over fourteen hundred business leaders, academics, and officials are looking for ways to promote sustainable growth. They are looking at how companies and industries are transforming to meet future challenges, as they recover from the economic slowdown.

The foremost global business gathering in Asia...Greater competitiveness will allow entrepreneurship, innovation, and technology to create new growth opportunities.

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao has been an old friend and constant supporter of the Summer Davos.

Participants will engage in over one hundred interactive sessions throughout the three day forum.

Formats range from plenary meetings, to mentors' discussions, to networking lunches. Participants will brainstorm to reshape the competitive landscape in a resource limited world.

One key focus is on the rising role of Asia's soft power. And China, which just moved up two places in the Global Competitiveness Report, is leading the way of large developing economies.

The changing new growth context and new business model are posing challenges to many traditional

enterprises.And it's the common task of the new champions to find solutions.

Wang Mangmang, Reporter, said, "This Summer Davos is likely to continue the last round's focus on the way out of crisis. Fears of a double-dip make it difficult to predict the shape of future growth. But the will to transform and the initiatives that are in place may help restore some confidence in the global business sector. It'll make interesting watching to see how participants use this platform to rethink and reshape."
