Symposium on “Chinese Economy under New Globalization:

New Mode, New Dynamics and New Trends”


China, as one of the most important emerging markets in the world, has been continually deepening its globalization in the past four decades. Since 2013, China put forward the idea of “the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road”. However, the mode in which China participates in the global market has been showing new significant trends and dynamic changes as well. This raises new questions not only for the key global economy participants but also for policymakers. For example, how do Chinese companies work under the new environment and what do they do? How will they affect the global market? How do global companies develop a new cooperative relationship with China under this new mode and recent trends? What lessons can other countries learn from the experience of China? These issues are critical not only for China but also for other emerging market economies.

Ningbo Institute of Technology, Zhejiang University, will organize a symposium on above and related issues in the Emerging Markets Finance and Trade (current SSCI impact factor: 0.826) to promote understanding of China’s new globalization and to further improve the cooperation among emerging markets.


Topics: We welcome submissions related to critical issues and challenges in emerging economies, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Overseas Investment and Multinational Operations of Chinese Enterprises

  • Development of Services Industry and Global Services Trade

  • Cross-border E-commerce and Transformation of Chinese Manufacturing Industry

  • Belt and Roadand Global Economic Cooperation

  • Chinese Financial Innovation under Globalization

  • Smart City and Smart Industry under Globalization


Guest Editor: Wen Xiao, Ningbo Institute of Technology, Zhejiang University
