Liaoning University International Conference 2024


China Development and the Global Economy


(Supported by China Economic Review)


June 8. 2024


Over the past four and a half decades, China’s growth has been the envy of the world, and has contributed significantly to the global economic growth.  However, the past ten years has proven to be challenging.  The New Normal, population aging, trade friction, geopolitical tension, and COVID have all weighed heavy on China’s rate of growth.  Though China’s commitment to the battle against global warming, the BRI, and the success in AI development are all hopes for the future, both domestically and globally.

In this challenging environment, China’s development needs to combine institutional reforms and industrial upgrade, stem the tide of deglobalization, and lower the tension geopolitically.  This conference is aimed at bringing together leading scholars in the area to share and exchange ideas that would benefit both China and the world.  We welcome submissions on, but not limited to, the following topics:

       High-quality economic development of China

       New Normality and Economic Stability

BRI and its global effects

       Digital economy and digital trade

            Digital transformation and labour market consequences

Population Aging and Fertility

Environment and sustainability

       Change and upgrade of Chinese trade structure in the new era of deglobalization

            Trade fictions and sustainable global supply chains

Openness of Northeast China and trade cooperation of Northeast Asia         

China’s inward and outward foreign direct investment

Innovation and business development

            Regional development and internal migration

            New-type urbanization, social insurance and health care
