Conference Venue: Stockholm School of Economics, Stockholm, Sweden
A conference on Finance, Trade and Political Economy will be held in Stockholm on 23-24 August 2018 by the Stockholm China Economic Research Institute at Stockholm School of Economics, jointly organized by the National School of Development at Peking University.
The financial sector and trade continue to play key roles in China’s economic development. Issues of importance include continued financial reforms, the shadow banking system, increasing debt levels, trade imbalances, and exchange rate policies. In addition, political considerations are important for both finance and trade. Such considerations include laws and rules, political connections of firms, political uncertainty, financing the state and private sectors, and the politics of international trade.
This conference will collect academic papers at both the micro and macro level with the aim of providing empirical evidence concerning challenges that China faces in terms of finance, trade and political economy. Papers that relate to these issues are therefore especially welcome. Topics covered may thus include but are not limited to:
- Financial reforms
- Access to finance
- Shadow banking
- Political economy of finance
- Financing the private sector
- Financial risk
- Trade imbalances
- Regional trade agreements
- Exchange rate policy
- Political economy
There is no conference fee for accepted presenters. The conference organizers will provide accommodation for two nights in a hotel close to the conference site and lunch free of charge.
