6th HenU / INFER Workshop on Applied Macroeconomics

6th HenU / INFER Workshop on Applied Macroeconomics, April 3 – 5, 2024

Call for papers: here!

From April 3 to 5, 2024, the Center for Financial Development and Stability (CFDS) at Henan University and the International Network for Economic Research (INFER) will organize their 6th Workshop on Applied Macroeconomics hosted by Henan University.

Since its economic opening in 1978 and even more so since its accession to the World Trade Organization in 2001, China has become one of the main actors of the global economy. Since 2009, China has been the largest exporter in the world. Since 2013, China has promoted its “Belt and Road Initiative”, funding infrastructure – mostly in emerging markets – along the new “maritime silk road” and the old land trade corridors of the historical silk road to further increase regional connectivity and possibly trade flows. While China has been continuously opening, there are still barriers to trade. With China’s economic prosperity, those are seen increasingly critical by Western trading partners who are less and less willing to treat China as developing economy but rather see it as rival. In this pivotal situation, we are looking for contributions to provide a better understanding of China’s role in the global economy. As always, we invite papers from all fields in applied macroeconomics, but papers matching those issues are particularly welcome. For more details, please visit http://appliedmacro.org.

Please submit your paper or extended abstract by December 10, 2023, via conferencemaker, preference will be given to full papers. The authors will be  about acceptance by December 20, 2023.
