China’s economic growth over the past four decades has lifted hundreds of millions of people out of poverty and established it as an economic powerhouse. Today, China's economy continues to grow at rates unseen in other countries hit hard by the COVID pandemic. What is the key to China’s economic success, and what challenges does the Chinese economy face in the years ahead?

The Becker Friedman Institute in China (BFI-China) was launched in 2018 to deepen economists’ understanding of these and other questions by working in partnership with leading Chinese institutions and scholars. The Tsinghua University - University of Chicago Joint Research Center for Economics and Finance, led by BFI-China and the Tsinghua School of Economics and Management, is a first-of-its-kind partnership that brings together economists from both universities to produce frontier insights on major issues in Chinese economic policy.

Watch the video of leaders of this historic initiative discuss the factors driving China’s economic expansion, how government and financial institutions evolve to become more efficient, and how their research can inform China’s policymakers to catalyze ongoing economic transformation in China.

过去四十年,中国的经济增长使数亿人摆脱贫困,也使中国成为了经济强国。如今当各国经济受到新冠疫情严重冲击时,中国经济却继续高速增长。中国经济成功的关键是什么?未来几年中国经济将面临哪些挑战?

贝克尔·弗里德曼中国研究所(BFI-China)成立于2018年,旨在通过与中国领先高校与学者的合作,加深对以上问题和其他问题的理解。由BFI-China和清华大学经济管理学院牵头的清华大学—芝加哥大学经济与金融联合研究中心是全球首创,汇集了两校经济学家,就中国经济政策的重大问题共同提出前沿见解。

这一重大学术合作项目的发起者就驱动中国经济扩张的因素,政府和金融机构如何改进以提高效率分享了他们的观点,并讨论了他们的研究如何为中国的决策者提供信息,以促进正在进行中的中国经济转型。
