ABOUT ICGD

¡@

Rejuvenated on July 1, 2011, the Institute for China and Global Development (ICGD) continues its aims to advance the understanding of China¡¦s interaction with the global economy through developing multi-disciplinary innovative research and training programs.  

 

China¡¦s recent economic development has made significant leaps; and demand for expertise and training in this area has correspondingly intensified.  Currently, there are six core programs under the Institute which are committed to investigate into greater details the key areas of the Chinese economy and how it interacts with the rest of the world.  Together, they provide a dynamic picture for understanding China's economic formation and prospect.

¡@

The Institute adopts an open architecture for nurturing new ideas and research areas over time.

Population and Migration in China

Coordinator:  Prof. Y. C. Richard Wong

¡@

This program studies the migration patterns of population within China since the beginning of reforms in 1980. The focus is on the determinants of migration decisions in response to reform policies that had progressively lessened the restrictions on migration and the socio-economic incentives for so doing and its consequences for social and economic development. The program studies the benefits and costs of migration for households at the micro level and the macro and regional levels.

China's globalization: International Trade and Foreign Direct Investment

Coordinator: Professor Larry Qiu

¡@

This program aims to generate understanding on China's participation in globalization, especially in the areas of international trade and foreign direct investment (FDI).  Although a large body of studies on various aspects of China's trade and FDI already exist, this program aims to provide a general framework incorporating Chinese features so to generate a sound explanation to what have been observed, provide critical evaluations on past trade and FDI policies, and draw useful implications and forecasts for the future development in this area.

Organizations and Strategies across China¡¦s Regions

Coordinator: Professor Zhigang Tao

¡@

Monitoring China¡¦s Financial Market Development, with an Emphasis  on Money and Banking

Coordinator:  Mr. Kwok Kwok-chuen

¡@

China¡¦s financial market development and reform are becoming an increasingly crucial aspect of the country¡¦s further development.  Enhancing the allocative efficiency of China's financial resources is crucial to improving the efficiency of resources allocation.  Financial reform is therefore part and parcel of China's intended change in its mode of development so as to improve sustainability.  From a global angle, as the world becomes more multi-polar and the developing world has more and more say in global matters, China is in a unique situation to explore new paradigms for the global financial and monetary order.

Governance of Chinese Economy

Coordinator:  Prof. Chenggang Xu

¡@

This program aims to examine the governance of the Chinese economy.  The role of government, reforms, laws and regulatory schemes play an important role in China's development.  This is an area of study shared by many senior researchers around the world; and is an important building block in understanding China's interaction with the global economy.

China Financial Liberalization, RMB Internationalization and Hong Kong's Development as an International Finance Centre (IFC)

Coordinator:  Prof. Frank Song

¡@

This research program examines the important issues on the further development of Hong Kong as an International Financial Centre (IFC) and its role in China¡¦s financial liberalization and RMB internationalization.  Although Hong Kong has built successfully its IFC status in the past three decades, there is an increasing challenge from neighboring cities. Hong Kong needs serious strategic positioning to develop into a distinct international financial centre and to serve China¡¦s rapid growth in the coming decades.
