About the Conference

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. At the same time China’s growth model has been slowly shifting towards one more based on consumption and services. The conference invites researchers to present their original works on issues related to developments in China’s financial markets and their implications for changes in China’s growth model. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • China’s financial liberalization and enterprise restructuring
  • China’s banking sector and financial intermediation
  • China’s bond and equity markets
  • Indebtedness in China
  • 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 June 28, 2017. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by July 30, 2017. Conference home page can be found here: .

The keynote speakers of the conference are Wei Xiong of Princeton University and Jennifer Carpenter of Stern School of Business, New York University.
