IEMS Newsletter Spring 2019

HKUST IEMS Newsletters No. 11


During the second half of 2018, HKUST IEMS organized events that continue active dialogue on key research themes emphasized by the Institute.

Building upon our past collaboration with the World Bank as a member of the Network for Jobs and Development, we hosted a launch event for the Banks’s 2019 World Development Report on “The Changing Nature of Work.”

IEMS also hosted a major research conference on population aging, an annual event of the Asia Pacific Rim Universities (APRU), as a well as the 4th Asian Population Association conference in Shanghai, activities which build upon the major conference on population aging in Asia the Institute organized with the World Bank in 2014.

Addressing development challenges facing China, IEMS continued to co-sponsor the China Economics Summer Institute, hosted a talk by well-known reform thinker Cai Fang, Vice President of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, on lessons from China’s 40 years of reform and opening up. 

It also organized an Emerging Markets Insight Series panel discussion on “Where is China’s Belt and Road Headed?” featuring insights from research as well as business leaders.
