China Research

A discussion forum on emerging markets, mainly China – from a macro, micro, institutional and corporate angle.

Objective and timetable

March 7, 2012

Dear readers of our relatively new blog,

it is a real pleasure for us at Linnaeus University in Kalmar and Växjö to launch our ”China Blog/Emerging Market Blog”. We feel really happy and proud to have gathered so many prominent experts from all over the world – experts who mainly represent both academic research and direct experience from Chinese financial and merchandize markets.We strongly believe in this mix on our new website – a mix that also includes other BRICS countries like India and Russia plus the (relatively) new EU-member countries around the Baltic Sea.

In the future, we will regularly publish articles on mainly both current and more structural China issues and certain other emerging economies. ”Regularly” will mean – if nothing unexpected happens – on every first Wednesday at 10.00 a.m. (09.00 GMT) in all 12 months.

We really do hope that the readers of our new ”China/Emerging Market Blog” will enjoy this new product.

Welcome – or ”välkommen” as we say in Sweden.

Chairman of the Editorial Board

Hubert Fromlet, Professor of International Economics
Vice Chairman of the Editorial Board
