The International Institute for the Study of Cross-Border Investment and M&A held its fifth
Symposium on current issues in international cross-border mergers, acquisitions and
strategic investments. The Symposium was hosted by its three founding Universities,
Peking University, Cambridge and NYU.
The Symposium represents an effort by its founding Universities and professionals to foster dialogue and
connections among the world’s leading business and legal experts, scholars and thought leaders about key issues, trends and developments
in the global deal markets. The goal is to encourage pragmatic, de-politicized analysis and study of the
market dynamics that fuel business expansion through cross-border M&A, and of the financial, legal, governmental
and societal frameworks that facilitate or hinder such activity.
The Symposium included a gathering of the XBMA Legal Roundtable, following the successful
launch of the XBMA Forum (http://xbma.org/forum/) in 2011.
