In Helsinki, May 16-17, 2011
As China’s importance in the world economy has grown, so has interest in its monetary and exchange rate policy. Next May, the Bank of Finland Institute for Economies in Transition (BOFIT) will host a research workshop devoted to these topics. The event is organized by, and is the launching event for, the new "Central bank-Academia Network on the Chinese economy", a joint venture between the Chinese Economic Association (Europe) and BOFIT.
The submitted papers will be reviewed for selection by a scientific committee consisting of Iikka Korhonen (Director, Bank of Finland, BOFIT), Aaron Mehrotra (Adviser, BOFIT) and Eric Girardin (Professor, Université de la Mediterranée).
The conference will be held at the premises of the Bank of Finland in Helsinki on May 16-17, 2011. We will be able to cover travel costs (economy class) and accommodation in Helsinki for academic paper presenters.
If you wish to submit a paper, please send a copy of it to Mr Aaron Mehrotra (address below). Submission by email (in pdf format) is preferred. Only complete papers will be considered.

The deadline for papers is February 28, 2011. Decisions on selected papers will be made by March 21.
