Call for Papers

China’s Financial System and Internationalization of the Renminbi  (CfP PDF)
In Helsinki, September 17-18, 2012

The deadline for papers is March 23, 2012.

As China’s importance in the world economy has grown, so has interest in its financial sector. Furthermore, the on-going liberalization of China’s capital flows and the internationalization of the Chinese renminbi will have far-reaching consequences for the Chinese financial system. Next September, the Bank of Finland Institute for Economies in Transition (BOFIT) will host a research workshop devoted to these topics. The seminar is the second one organized by the 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), Laura Solanko (Adviser, BOFIT), Eric Girardin (Professor, Aix-Marseille Université), Yin-Wong Cheung (Professor, City University of Hong Kong), Shang-Jin Wei (Professor, Columbia University) and Xuechun Zhang (Director, People’s Bank of China).

The conference will be held at the premises of the Bank of Finland in Helsinki on September 17-18, 2012. 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 Laura Solanko (address below). Submission by email (in pdf format) is preferred. Only complete papers will be considered.

The deadline for papers is March 23, 2012. Decisions on selected papers will be made by April 20.
