Over the past decade, China’s economic reform has gradually shifted toward liberalization of financial markets, and intensified its interactions with the global financial market. The admission of the RMB to the SDR basket, for example, exemplifies China’s increasing strengthen in the global financial market. The conference invites researchers to present their original works on issues related to developments in China’s financial markets and their implications for the global economy including the international monetary architecture.  We would like to strike a good balance between academic rigor and practical relevance, and offer alternative viewpoints on China’s influences on the world. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, global issues related to the following:
  • China’s financial liberalization and global stability 
  • China’s banking sector and financial intermediation
  • China’s bond and equity markets
  • China’s Foreign exchange policy
  • Onshore and offshore financial markets
  • Inclusion of the RMB in the SDR Basket
  • China’s interest rate liberalization and monetary policy

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 20, 2016. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by June 17, 2016.

Final versions of the accepted papers will be posted on the conference website. And, selected conference papers will be invited to be considered for publication in the Pacific Economic Review.
