The 20th Chinese Economic Association (Europe/UK) China Annual Conference:
Inclusive Development and Global Value Chains
CEA Europe/UK, Tsinghua University
Economic Research Journal
Date: 11th July 2020
It is widely recognized that the world economy is facing a profound change in the dynamics of growth and development, cooperation and competition between countries or regions are escalating, and the continuing trade frictions are posing more serious challenges to the multilateral trading system. Recent academic studies on China’s model of socioeconomic development indicate that China has gained significant competitive advantages and maintained steady growth in the process of accelerating industrialization and transforming economic development patterns. China has gone from being one of the most closed and isolated economies in the world of little relevance to the global economy and become both highly globalized and the world’s second biggest economy. Meanwhile, the economic paradigm, both in China and in the globe, is now shifting from the simple mass production of standardized goods (productivity expansion) into a focus on higher inputs of capital, less environmental impact, greener usage and re-usage of resource (productivity enhancement). It is predictable that the impact of its ongoing industrialization process on the world economic system will be profound.
To intend on the issues concerning alternative theories to the understanding of China’s industrialization process in the context of global value chains and the construction of an innovative, inclusive and open world economy since the reform and opening up, Chinese Economic Association (CEA, Europe/UK) will host the 20th CEA (Europe/UK) China Annual Conference by Zoom online platform on 11th July 2020. The conference will be organized by the Institute for Contemporary China Studies of Tsinghua University, and the Economic Research Journal which is published by the Institute of Economics at Chinese Academy of Social Science will provide the academic support, the outstanding papers presented at the conference will be recommended to the Economic Research Journal.

The main objective of the CEA (Europe) is to promote scholarly exchanges and encourage academic leadership associated with the Chinese economic and business studies in Europe. Since the establishment of the CEA (Europe), five annual conferences in association with the CEA (UK) have been held in various locations in Europe starting with its inaugural conference in 2009 in Dublin, Ireland.
CEA (UK)The CEA (UK) was launched in 1988 and has since become one of the leading organisations in the UK promoting research on China. Its past annual conferences have attracted wide-ranging attention from academic institutions, government organisations, banks and industries, alongside with the media in the UK and China. Prominent speakers have included ministers from the Chinese and British governments, the Chinese ambassadors, and eminent academic figures of international repute including Nobel laureates in economics.
