Day 3: The Economy Post-pandemic

Day 3 (July 22) is hosted by the renowned Tsinghua University School of Economics and Management (SEM) and features numerous experts in their fields to help guide you to explore the economy post-pandemic.

Amongst all the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, one certainty is the significant impact on global economic order. The Sino-US trade dispute, the re-configuration of the global industrial supply chain, and potential global decoupling all present significant challenges going forward. For a sustainable future we must focus on how to promote financial stability and sustainable trade and production networks.

To begin Day 3, we dive into the core workings of the economy with a keynote speech by the Dean of the School of Economics and Management Professor BAI Chong-En, discussing Opportunities and Challenges of the Industrial Chain.

He earned his Ph.D. degree in Economics from Harvard University. His research areas include Institutional Economics, Economic Growth and Development, Public Economics, Finance, Corporate Governance and Chinese Economy.
