        In 2010, growth of global economy slows down after an unexpected rebound. The sustainability of economic recovery is threatened. The large-scale of monetary and fiscal expansion at US, Japan, Europe increase sovereign debt burden significantly.  China’s local government debt, capital inflows, overheating and different paces of exit strategy at emerging markets all become serious problems. In contrast to short-run economic stimulus packages, long-run structural and financial reforms are necessitated for sustainable economic growth.
In order to encourage policy discussions and interactions among Chinese and foreign researchers as well as policy makers, School of Finance at CUFE together with the Center for International Finance Study, “China and World Economy”, Keio University organize this fourth Asia-Pacific Forum of Economics and Finance at Dec. 13 – 14, 2010. The theme of this forum is “Economic Recovery, Structural Reform and Institutional Innovation”.
