About: The Chinese University of Hong Kong has been particularly strong in the study of the Chinese economy, corporate finance and the emerging financial markets of China and Asia. In its Strategic Plan 2006, Economics and Finance has been identified as a key area for strategic research investment of the University. Therefore substantial resources are invested to create the Center for Economics and Finance with a mission to promote high quality research and education on Chinese economy and corporate finance in Asia and China. Our vision is to strive to become a world leader and research powerhouse in economics and finance in China and Asia, and to contribute to Hong Kongs strength as a hub of international trade and finance through research, consultancy, public service and teaching. The Center will sponsor activities that help to build the needed infrastructures for high quality research, provide a platform for scholarly exchanges of research results, and facilitate intermediate knowledge transfer between researchers and governments, international organizations, and business communities.
Co-Directors Prof. Joseph P.H. Fan, Department of Finance Prof. Junsen Zhang, Department of Economics.
