将 (jiāng) can be used to denote something is about to happen in the near future, a bit like "about to" in English. It is generally used in formal contexts.

  • 我 相信 你 会 成为 一 个 成功 的 企业家。
  • 去 中国 学习。
  • 我们 公司 要 出 一 个 新 的 产品。

将 is often combined with other verbs like 会 and 要, and has a similar meaning.
