Oxford Forum on China and World Economy to Take Place May 9
ODID and the Oxford University China Centre are holding a forum on China and the World Economy on May 9.
The world economy is at a crossroads, facing the danger of a double dip recession. Whilst China has served as a major engine of global economic growth, it also faces various internal and external challenges. It therefore seems a particularly important time to review the world economic situation and prospects and China’s role in global economic growth and development.
The Oxford Forum on China and the World Economy will host the following speakers:
- Professor Alan Winters (Former Chief Economist of DFID)
- Professor Angang Hu (Tsinghua University)
- Professor David Vines (Oxford University)
- Mr John Farnell (European Commission)
- Professor Shujie Yao (Nottingham University)
- Mr Stephen Perry (The 48 Group Club & China-Britain Business Council)
- Dr Xiaolan Fu (Oxford University)
- Professor Yongding Yu (Chinese Academy of Social Sciences)
The event will take place on May 9, 1:30-6:00 pm, in the Nissan Lecture Theatre, St Antony's College.
