In the midst of its strong economic performance, China has made conscientious efforts in modernizing its financial sector. What are the current and future paths of China’s financial intermediaries? What is the role of financial intermediation in shaping the growth and stability of China’s economy? The conference invites researchers to present their original works on issues related to China’s financial intermediation, and its implications for local and global economies. We would like to strike a good balance between academic rigor and practical relevance, and offer alternative viewpoints on China’s financial intermediation. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • The evolving banking sector
  • Capital markets
  • Financial intermediation, growth, and stability
  • Cross-border financial interactions
  • Measuring financial intermediation
  • Financial inclusion and financial literacy
Those interested in presenting at the conference should send a completed paper or a two-page detailed abstract in WORD or PDF format via email to by May 14, 2015. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by June 14, 2015.
Presenters may apply for financial support to cover economy class airfare and local accommodation expenses.
Final versions of the accepted papers will be posted on the conference website. Selected conference papers will be invited to be considered for publication in the Pacific Economic Review.
