This marks the fifth consecutive year Summer Davos is being held in China. Michael Wang takes a closer look at the background of the annual summer sessions.

In September of 2007 - 40 years since the event was established - the World Economic Forum decided for the first time to leave Switzerland. Its new destination: China.

Providing a platform to address the rapid economic growth of emerging market economies, the foundation established a new forum, "The Annual Meeting of the New Champions" in China, also known as Summer Davos.

The northern and northeastern Chinese cities of Dalian and Tianjin alternate as hosts for the event.

With global economic growth recovering sluggishly and uncertainties in both the United States and the euro zone, this year's theme focuses on "Mastering Quality Growth."

An estimated 1,600 participants, ranging from executives of global growth companies to young and upcoming global leaders are expected to attend this year.
