Symposium on China’s Economy and Governance


          Since the late 1970s, China has enjoyed spectacular economic growth, with the annual growth rate of GDP averaging close to 10%. China is today the world’s second-largest economy, largest trader, and the largest holder of foreign exchange reserves. Yet as Chinese leaders and numerous others have noted, China faces significant economic and related political challenges, as the existing model of economic development has come under increasing strains. 
          This symposium brings together many of the foremost experts in the fields of Chinese economy and political economy to present their latest research on China’s economy and governance. Participants will discuss issues of economic governance; trade, migration and regional incomes; environmental regulation; recent issues surrounding China’s human capital; economic growth; entrepreneurship; and more.
