HUNTSVILLE, Ala., June 28, 2005 – Intergraph Corporation announced today that Arthur Kroeber, managing editor of the China Economic Quarterly and noted economic affairs journalist, is a special guest speaker at the International Business Symposium, July 11-12, Shanghai, China ( As a senior economist and seasoned journalist, Kroeber communicates clear analysis and practical advice on macro- and micro-economic issues – in a global context – to business leaders from the process manufacturing, power generation, shipbuilding and offshore oil and gas industries during the exclusive executive event. Kroeber will present his unique assessment of the opportunities and challenges involved in making strategic business decisions in China. He also addresses business cycles in China and views on how the rest of the world can best do business with China , the world’s fastest-growing emerging market.

“The Asia Pacific region’s hypercompetitive economic engine is generating high demand for energy and construction materials and sustained growth in the manufacture of consumer and industrial goods for domestic consumption and international trade. Much of this growth is occurring in China, which is changing rapidly and in turn changing the world. Petroleum and petrochemical businesses, the electric power generation sector and the marine industries are all playing crucial roles in the creation of modern infrastructure in the Asia Pacific region, particularly in China.”

“Key executives in these industries need to know more about the challenges of working, creating partnerships and executing large projects in this hypercompetitive, globalized environment.
