The monthlong program kicked off in early January with a discussion titled, “Understanding China’s Economic Rise: History, Trends, and Challenges.”
Booth professors Zhiguo He, the Fuji Bank and Heller Professor of Finance and Jeuck Faculty Fellow, and Chang-Tai Hsieh, the Phyllis and Irwin Winkelried Professor of Economics and PCL Faculty Scholar, joined a panel to explore the key factors to China’s economic success and the challenges the Chinese economy faces in the years ahead.
Upcoming events in the series include A Conversation on Medical Diversities in China (January 19), The Next Frontier in Chinese Energy and Environmental Policy (January 21), and Chemistry: A Tool for Understanding Human Health (January 26).
The Center in Beijing was established in 2010 to support the growing number of University of Chicago faculty engaged with collaborators in the region, as well as the increasing number of students and alumni in China. It has served as a hub to enhance and strengthen the university’s rich tradition of engagement in China in many fields of study. Since its opening, the center has hosted over 500 events, welcomed over 45,000 visitors, and served over 2,500 faculty, staff, and students.
More information on the anniversary events, which are open to the public, can be found at UChicago Global.
