China Economics has become a major field of Economics since the open policy implemented by China in 1978. More and more economists pay more attention to any economic issues regarding China and thus more and more papers discussing economic issues regarding China are published in many distinguished journals. Association for China Economic Studies (ACES) has established by a group of scholars concerning China’s economic issues and contributed to economic research related to China since 2012. The goal of ACES is to provide a platform for scholars to exchange their views in issues regarding China’s economy. The 2019 International Conference of ACES was hosted by Chung Yuan Christian University on July 11-15, 2019. There were more than one hundred scholars from USA, China, UK, Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, Canada, Korea, Taiwan, …etc. attending the conference.


In 2020, the ACES scales up this conference from domestic to international one and would like to invite more scholars from all over the world to share ideas and opinions with regard to any economic issues related (but not limited) to China. At the Conference, active and lively discussions are expected among paper presenters and other participants. There will also be intriguing keynote speeches by renowned scholars.


All articles related to any fields of Economics are welcome as long as China is included in the discussion of the article. We accept papers and presentations in Chinese for encouraging more Chinese scholars who are more comfortable in speaking Chinese to attend this conference, although English is the language for your submissions presentations at this conference. We also welcome you to organize a panel of 4 papers for this conference.


The ACES thanks Asian Growth Research Institute for hosting 2020 conference and three excellent journals indexed in SSCI, Singapore Economic Review (SER), The International Review of Economics & Finance (IREF), and Journal of Family and Economic Issues (JFEI) for collecting papers from this conference in their special issues/section. We look forward to your participation in this conference.
