IMF China Representative Visited IN-EAST
Alfred Schipke, Senior Resident Representative for China, International Monetary Fund (IMF), delivered a keynote speech at a meeting of experts and young academics.
Schipke presented a frank and only partly optimistic picture of the contemporary economic situation in China and the various challenges faced by China's economic policy makers. While the reform of the state-owned enterprise sector remains to have highest priority, some important success have already been achieved with regard to a rebalancing of the external sector as well as a strengthening of the services sector as the new pillar of the economy.
The conference and Ph.D. workshop on “Institutional economic perspectives on “One Belt One Road” and Innovation in China and Europe” was hosted by the University of Duisburg-Essen and took place on October 05-08, 2016. The event was co-organized by the Mercator School of Management (MSM), University of Duisburg-Essen and the Center for Economic Development Research (CEDR), Business School, Wuhan University.
