New economics research centre
Share this article
In a display of the sort of technological wizardry that has shrunk our world over the past 10 years and injected new meaning into the words "global economics", CityU President Professor H K Chang and University of Washington President Professor Richard McCormick linked up by videoconference to inaugurate the Research Centre for International Economics (RCIE), a joint venture aimed at furthering economic research activities between the two universities.
RCIE has organized several conferences and workshops on international economics, the Asian financial crisis and China economics at the University of Washington and CityU respectively. Two international conferences on the recovery of the Asian economy, and international trade and economic growth will be held in July in Japan.
More universities have come into partnership with RCIE, which is playing an important role in promoting international economics study and activities in the region.
