Beijing Conference Kicks off Chazen Book Project
Columbia professors joined leading experts in international economics and finance in Beijing to discuss the challenges of China’s financial markets and debate practical, timely solutions. Under the direction of Academic Director Charles Calomiris, the Chazen Institute has commissioned authorities from the academic and professional realms to discuss the evolving changes in Chinese foreign exchange and capital markets through a comprehensive two year book project.
Chapter authors of “China at the Crossroads: FX and Capital Markets Policies for the Coming Decade” were hosted by Tsinghua University, a leading economic research institution, in Beijing from August 29th to 30th. Over the two-day conference each author gave an in-depth presentation on his research, followed by comments from leading Chinese financial organizations and a candid discussion period. Chapter authors will bring this on-the-ground knowledge sharing to the New York Conference on Columbia University’s campus from February 2 - 3, 2006. A volume is scheduled to be published in January 2007. More information on China at the Crossroads coming soon on the Institute’s Research and Resources page.
