Speaking at the award ceremony, Zeth Hung, Managing Director and Co-Head of Greater China Investment Banking and Capital Markets, Credit Suisse, said, "China's entrepreneurs have made significant inroads in transforming themselves from adaptors to innovators, producing many of today's global business leaders. The size of the entrepreneurial community has grown exponentially, playing an increasingly important role in China's economy and in Research & Development (R&D). Credit Suisse forecasts China's R&D investment to surpass the US by 2020 as China shifts to a new economic paradigm driven by innovation. Many of today's entrepreneurs are not only dedicated to the success of their business, but to making significant contributions to society at large, supporting many philanthropic projects across the country. As the Trusted Entrepreneurs' Bank of Asia Pacific, Credit Suisse is delighted to demonstrate its support of China's entrepreneurs by serving as the Platinum sponsor of this prestigious business awards program."
