One important mission of the Department is to pursue high quality scholarly research. We promote research in financial and economic issues in the Asia-Pacific region. We have established an excellent research environment, including a productive and energetic research team. With the first-class research facilities provided by the City University, we anticipate continuing to play a leading role in research areas of economics and finance in the Asia-Pacific region.

We consolidate our research efforts particularly in the areas of financial markets of Hong Kong, mainland China, and other Asia-Pacific economies as well as studies related to the global economy and international trade, and promote interactions among scholars in Hong Kong and the rest of the world.

We have established and maintained collaborative relationships with major institutions, including the People's Bank of China, the Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Renmin University of China, Zhejiang University, Lingnan College of Zhongshan University, University of Paris I, Kobe University, Institute of Economics of Academia Sinica, among others. Many of our faculty members work closely with faculty members at major universities in China, Japan, Canada and the United States on joint research projects.

We are a leading department in economics and finance in the Asia-Pacific region, and look forward to continuing to serve Hong Kong and the Asia-Pacific region in the exciting years ahead.
