To promote China-related financial research globally, Tsinghua University PBC School of Finance and Tsinghua University National Institute of Financial Research co-organize the Annual China Financial Research Conference (CFRC). CFRC provides a high-quality academic exchange platform, where finance scholars and practitioners worldwide can share their in-depth research on important finance issues in China and exchange ideas on new developments in finance research, with the ultimate goal of reforming China’s financial system and encouraging financial innovations in China.

The 2024 China Financial Research Conference (CFRC 2024) will be held from July 6 to July 7, 2024 in Beijing, China.
