On January 23, the Chinese government locked down the city of Wuhan (Hubei Province). In subsequent days, similar measures were taken in other cities in Hubei and throughout China. These actions launched months of economic and social restrictions throughout the nation. Other regions in Asia have implemented similar policies. Last week, cities in China emerged from months of lockdown and the country seems poised for recovery. Outside of China, some regions are discussing and planning for re-opening. As much of the West continues to battle with COVID-19, the eyes of the world are on China and other Asian countries where the virus is temporarily contained, watching to see how their economies recover from the pandemic – and whether relaxed restrictions will result in a new wave of infections as some regions in Asia are experiencing a mild resurgence.

BFI-China, in collaboration with the Asian Bureau of Finance and Economic Research (ABFER), will host a series of virtual seminars to discuss emerging research on the economic implications of COVID-19 and its impact on China, Asia, and beyond. To present at a forthcoming seminar, please submit your research using this link.

Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis by Chang-Tai Hsieh, Zhiguo He, and Bernard Yeung, and selected papers for the Friday seminar will be announced by Wednesday.

The seminar will be held bi-weekly on Fridays. Please use the following link to join the seminar:
