Call for Papers 2019 International Conference on U.S.-China Trade Relations and Reforms in Globalization

Time: 2019-12-07 07:35 Print


Trade relation between China and the United States has changed significantly since 2018, so is the global governance system. For now, disputes between China and the U.S. have rapidly expanded from trade to technology and finance areas. As a result, both the global value chain and the global financial system are faced with much uncertainty. How to maintain a stable and efficient global value chain and a sustained economic growth becomes the top priority for academic, political and business fields. Disputes between China and the U.S. rise suddenly, yet with far-reaching effects. The academic and policy research on this issue is far behind the reality. We held the first "International Conference on U.S.-China Trade Relations and Reforms in Globalization" in December 2018. The conference will be held for the second time this year and will continue to be held in December every year. This conference aims to bring together academic and policy researchers and practitioners to exchange all-round and multi-angle views on a variety of issues. The conference aims to provide a platform for communicating, promote academic research and to offer policy discussions.
