About the Event

HKUST IEMS will host the 9th annual China Economics Summer Institute (CESI) from August 18 to 20, 2016 in Hong Kong at HKUST’s campus in Clear Water Bay.

The objective of CESI is to create a network and community of top level scholars working on Chinese economic development. This initiative is currently co-sponsored by the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, UC Berkeley IGov – Institutions and Governance Program at the Institute for International Studies, the School of Economics and Management at Tsinghua University, the Guanghua School of Management at Peking University and the Institute for Emerging Market Studies at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. The Summer Institute is organized in collaboration with the BREAD, NBER and CEPR networks of academic economists.

The 3-day workshop intends to bring together the best scholars working on China in China, the US and Europe with other top level scholars who have an interest in working on China in the future. During the workshop, there will be seminar presentations and free time to allow scholars to interact and explore the possibility of doing joint research projects. Senior scholars who will attend will be available for consultations with junior scholars. Afternoon sessions will give the opportunity to a select group of young scholars and Ph. D students to present their work.

The scientific committee of the China Economic Summer Institute is composed of Chongen Bai, Robin Burgess, Hongbin Cai, Chang-Tai Hsieh, Hongbin Li, Albert Park, Gérard Roland, and Yaohui Zhao.
