This annual event explores the theme of international economics, with special attention on the Asia and Pacific region and the Chinese economy.
It is part of the efforts of the Research Institute of Economic Integration to promote research in these two themes and build a network of researchers in the Asia and Pacific region. It is a forum for presenting research papers and developing joint research.
It is held at the XJTLU campus in Suzhou, usually within the first and second week of either May or July. Some funding is available for travelling for researchers within the region.
The round-table seminar is a platform for researchers doing empirical studies on the above mentioned fields. More than 15 papers are usually scheduled to be presented while participants are requested to provide their comments.
