Understanding China's Economic Rise: History, Trends, and Challenges | 理解中国经济的崛起: 历史、趋势与挑战

Wednesday, January 6, 2021 9:00 am - 10:00 am



China’s economic growth over the past four decades has lifted hundreds of millions of people out of poverty and established it as an economic powerhouse. Today, China's economy continues to grow at rates unseen in other countries hit hard by the COVID pandemic. What is the key to China’s economic success, and what challenges does the Chinese economy face in the years ahead?

The Becker Friedman Institute in China (BFI-China) was launched in 2018 to deepen economists’ understanding of these and other questions by working in partnership with leading Chinese institutions and scholars. The Tsinghua University - University of Chicago Joint Research Center for Economics and Finance, led by BFI-China and the Tsinghua School of Economics and Management, is a first-of-its-kind partnership that brings together economists from both universities to produce frontier insights on major issues in Chinese economic policy.

Watch the video of leaders of this historic initiative discuss the factors driving China’s economic expansion, how government and financial institutions evolve to become more efficient, and how their research can inform China’s policymakers to catalyze ongoing economic transformation in China.
