In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, there might be fundamental changes of the Asian and world economy. International capital flow and transnational corporations (TNCs) represented by foreign direct investment (FDI) have also been changing the development trajectory and trend of the Asian and global economy.

  • With many years of the reforms and opening-up, China has been integrating into the global economy through FDI and trade. In this historical time for economic development, there is a serious need to examine the impact of FDI on China’s, Asia’s and the world’s economic patterns and to what extent could it affect the international trade, capital flows, institutional innovations, and international development.

  • In recent years, China's development has contributed to the integration of the world economy. The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which has become important in shaping the Chinese economic and trade patterns, deserves a special attention. The FDI studies need to pay more attention to the analysis on the roles of international organizations, international rules and global collaborations.

Because of its particular importance in the context of the dramatic changes in the Asian and world economic and trade development trajectories., this online conference is proposed by collaborating with the experts, especially young scholars from China and the rest of the world.

  • A number of well-known experts under invitation include those from Cornell University, the University of Toronto, and United Nations Conference on Trade and Development.
  • Experts, esp. young scholars from China, Aisan, and the rest of the world are welcome to inquire and participate. More conference information will be informed in the following weeks.
