September 14, 2017: Sudhir Amembal today announced Amembal & Halladay’s participation in the recently concluded Fourth Annual Global Leasing Industry Competitiveness Forum, held September 12-13, 2017 in Tianjin, China. The Forum was co-organized by Amembal & Halladay. Continuing the success of the first three forums held in 2014, 2015 and 2016, this year’s conference attracted nearly 450 leasing professionals, government officials, bankers, students, and members of the media.
The focus of this year’s Forum was “New Regulation and New Opportunities – The Evolution of the Leasing Industry”. It consisted of a unique blend of general assemblies supplemented by a CEO panel and hands-on parallel sessions that addressed specific concerns and questions of the attendees. Speakers included Chinese leasing luminaries, government representatives, and prestigious speakers from the U.S. and Australia.
Sudhir Amembal, Chairman & CEO of Amembal & Halladay, advised the organizers on the conference agenda and speakers, chaired the conference, and delivered the keynote address. Shawn Halladay, Managing Director of the company, addressed the gathering and moderated three roundtable sessions.
Mr. Amembal stated, “One of the unique benefits of the Forum is that the global leasing experts provide insight into their own respective mature market; the Chinese speakers add tremendous value by presenting pragmatic domestic solutions. Each year, the conference brings significantly increasing value to the growth of the Chinese leasing industry and allows Chinese leasing professionals to learn from the experts. They are learning extremely fast and, in terms of volume, will more than likely become the world’s leading leasing economy, given current estimated growth rates, by 2026. In addition, their government is highly supportive of the leasing industry as a whole, indicating that leasing will continue to play a significant role in China’s continued economic and financial transformation.”
