The 2015 Michigan China Forum focus on business startups, Technology, innovation and data analysis is especially important as developing and developed societies face the effects of globalization. Today’s era is one of the best times to start a company with international breadth. Moreover, the US economy is expected to grow continually in 2015 and political decisions in the US focus on increased Internet broadband efficiency and usage. 

Since the rapid growth of Chinese Internet/technology startups and the increased numbers of Chinese students in Michigan State University, the Greater China Supply Chain Forum will change its name to the Michigan China Forum. The theme for 2015 Michigan China Forum was  "Opportunities, Challenges, and a New Era”
