The second China’s transition: new reforms for a new context
CERDI-IDREC, University of Auvergne, France
Clermont-Ferrand, 22-23 October, 2015
[ Programme ]
[ Practical information ]

The CERDI-IDREC organizes every two years an international conference on the Chinese economy. The conference attracts participants worldwide to address major economic issues and challenges that China and the world are currently facing. The theme of this tenth conference is “The second China’s transition: new reforms for a new context”. The theme is significant and timely from both the research and policy perspectives.

Since 2012 and the new direction of the China’s government, some new reforms are going to be implemented. After a first transition initiated in 1979 China had benefited from a high growth rate and a strong trade surplus. The result is that now China is the first country in the world in terms of GDP. But, the context, from an internal and external point of view is now quite different. China has a changing comparative advantage with higher wages, more inequalities, environmental problems, energy dependency…The slowing demand in Europe and United States had a negative impact on his trade balance and China is developing its trade and investments with emerging and developing economics. So, a new kind of transition is now on the way to achieve an economic market, especially with the liberalization of the production factors. It will concern mainly the economic questions but the implications are also social and political.

The themes of this conference are:
  • Environment, nature resources and Climate
  • Inequalities, poverty and social policy
  • Financial sector: reform, risks and perspectives
  • Trade, international investment and relocation of Chinese firms
  • Urbanization, migrations, transports
  • The reform of the State-owned enterprises

As for the previous conferences the best papers will be published in the China Economic Review and/or in a book format.
