Annual Conference on China’s Economic Development and U.S.-China Economic Relations

The U.S.-China relationship is now second to none in importance for international economic relations and policy and accordingly is a major focus of IIEP. The centerpiece of this initiative is our annual Conference on China’s Economic Development and U.S.-China Economic and Relations, which has become one of the premier events of its type.

The conference features leading scholars from the U.S., China, and other countries, who present research on a wide range of issues. Conference sessions have addressed a wide range of topics such as the prospects for China’s continued growth; financial liberalization; trade imbalances and practices; retirement patterns and pension reform; industrial clusters; gender imbalances; the rural-urban development balance and patterns of poverty reduction; labor migration; and China’s role in international development financing. The conference has become a leading forum for experts in the research and policy community to improve understanding of issues critical to China, the U.S., and the global economy.
