ABOUT ICGD

¡@

Rejuvenated on July 1, 2011, the Institute for China and Global Development (ICGD) continues its aims to advance the understanding of China's interaction with the global economy through developing multi-disciplinary innovative research and training programs.  

 

China's recent economic development has made significant leaps; and demand for expertise and training in this area has correspondingly intensified.  Currently, there are six core programs under the Institute which are committed to investigate into greater details the key areas of the Chinese economy and how it interacts with the rest of the world.  Together, they provide a dynamic picture for understanding China's economic formation and prospect.

¡@

The Institute adopts an open architecture for nurturing new ideas and research areas over time.

Industrial Economics and Competitive Policy

Program Coordinator:  Prof. Yuk-fai Fong

¡@

Ensuring fair competition among firms is instrumental to economic development. Competition/antimonopoly law and policy has become increasingly important in China, including Hong Kong. This program aims to encourage and support economic research which informs policy makers, enforcers, practicing lawyers, economic consultants, company legal counsels, and researchers in the antitrust and competition field. Events will also be organized to promote interaction and exchange of ideas among academic researchers and practitioners.

Population and Migration in China

Coordinator:  Prof. Y. C. Richard Wong

¡@

This program studies the migration patterns of population within China since the beginning of reforms in 1980. The focus is on the determinants of migration decisions in response to reform policies that had progressively lessened the restrictions on migration and the socio-economic incentives for so doing and its consequences for social and economic development. The program studies the benefits and costs of migration for households at the micro level and the macro and regional levels.
