In face of economic restructuring, enterprise leaders need to be tri-sector leaders, Dominic Barton, global managing director of global management consulting firm Mckinsey said Sunday.

"If you're a leader, you have to be a business leader, a public sector leader, and a social sector leader," he said to Xinhuanet on the sideline of the ongoing China Development Forum.

In order to become thought partners on competitivess policies, it is their responsibility to work and cooperate with the governments, Barton added.

According to a December 2009 McKinsey survey, a majority of executives and other business leaders do not regard their companies’engagement with government to be effective.

On the future development of China and the world, he suggested China to also look at exports to countries in Latin America and Africa while doing much with the U.S. and other western nations. "It's lots of opportunities in these areas."

Speaking of international trade and economic restructuring, he pointed out the world should get a better understanding of the complexity of global economy, stressing "it's not one country competing with another."

On Mckinsey's own development in face of globalization, Barton said, "It is a global world, we are not identified with one country, we are in every country.

"We think that there are a lot of global issues that we should be involved in, not just country issues."

The China Development Forum 2010, started Sunday, is sponsored by the Development Research Center of the State Council and will end Monday.
