The main focus of the Research Institute for Economic Integration is economic integration. It examines, but is not limited to, subjects such as trade, investment, business strategies, international operations, corporate and public governance, exchange rates, financial inclusion, economic and social sustainability, economic growth, industrial agglomeration, and environmental protection.
China plays a key role in the Asia Pacific region’s economic integration. Understanding and capturing the linkages and interactions among spatial units (provinces, cities or counties) within the Chinese economy is key to understanding the processes of integration.
The key goal of the institute is to provide an interdisciplinary research platform to bring together scholars, business community and policy makers to understand, debate and solve the practical problems related to economic integration.Find out more
