The Centre for Asian Business and Economics was founded in 2014 as a part of the Faculty of Business and Economics strategy for enhancing the Faculty's presence in the Asia-Pacific region.
Our mission is to strengthen linkages with Asian universities, business and government, and enhance our presence in Asia to develop our capabilities in research relevant to Asia.
The Centre will bring together researchers in economics, accounting, finance, management, marketing and other related fields to develop broader perspectives in their study of Asian economies and business strategies/practices in Asia. The Centre will host forums, seminars and conferences on issues related to Asian business and economies and implement visitors' programs which aim to develop Asia related collaborative research and institutional linkages.
Key aims of the Centre:
- To be an intellectual hub in issues related to business and economics in Asia.
- To be a focal point in developing institutional linkages in Asia.
- To have a positive impact on business practices and the development of Asian economies.
- To signal FBE's strategic direction and its commitment to Asia.
- To become a centre of excellence on Asia-related issues in the Faculty and partnering institutions.
To achieve this, the Centre will focus on three key areas: a strong Research Program, a Visiting Fellow Program and a Study Program.
We will also be running a series of events aimed at fostering discussion around the topics of Asian business and develop strong ties between academic staff and multinational business leaders.
CABE hosts research fellows and visitors to facilitate interaction and research collaboration on issues in Asian business and economics.

China's Progress Towards a Market Economy and the Influence of Xi Jinping and Donald Trump

The transition from a centrally planned command economy to an efficient market economy is a more complex process than was commonly assumed by many of the economists advising this transition in Eastern Europe. China began this transition in an unplanned but effective way and then in the early 1990s made a firm commitment to create an efficient market economy. Creating the institutions required by such an economy was accomplished first by central government actions and then increasingly by reforms often instituted at the enterprise level. The Third Plenum of the 18th Party Congress in 2013 laid out an ambitious plan to complete the process. But in 2017 and 2018 progress toward an efficient market economy was called into question by a combination of US government actions questioning the value of liberal multilateral trade arrangements and a Chinese leadership decision to bring politics and political ideology back into economic decision making at all levels.
