We are pleased to announce that the third China Meeting of the Econometric Society, organized jointly by the Econometric Society and the Research Institute of Economics and Management, Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE), will be held on June 25-27, 2016 at the Southwestern University of Finance and Economics, Chengdu, China.

The objective of the China Meeting of the Econometric Society is to promote academic exchanges between scholars in the Greater China region and the West. The inaugural meeting was held in Peking University in 2013 and the second meeting was in Xiamen University in 2014.

Chengdu has been known as the “Country of Heavens” since more than 2,000 years ago, and now is the fifth-most populous city in China. Chengdu is also an officially-recognised UNESCO city of Gastronomy and the home of the giant panda.

The Research Institute of Economics and Management (RIEM) at SWUFE was established in 2006. Now RIEM has more than 100 graduate students and 45 faculty members holding doctoral degrees from well-established universities all over the world.
