The new tech cold war is on the horizon, the world's technological ecosystem will likely splinter into two contrasting systems, one dominated by the US and the other led by China. As China strives to be technologically independent from the rest of the world, Shenzhen as China's hi-tech hub, is aspired to rival the US' Silicon Valley.

What makes Silicon Valley tick? How has one California valley shaped big tech in the world's largest economy? And how China's fishing village from 4 decades ago has become home to China's national champions today? What are the differences and similarities between the San Francisco Bay Area and the Greater Bay Area? Is Shenzhen the next Silicon Valley already?

Please hear from two leading analysts as they will engage in an interactive debate on the future of Shenzhen as China's center for technology and innovation.
