Title Welcome Ltter from the CES President (2020-2021)
Date 2020-09-01

Dear CES Members and Friends:

As the President of the Chinese Economists Society (CES) for 2020-2021, first please let me congratulate and thank Dr. Junfu Zhang and his Board of Directors for a successful and fruitful past year! Their dedication and creativity through these difficult and challenging times are truly inspiring to me, and our new leadership team, who take office on September 1, 2020.

As we continue to navigate through uncertainties and challenges amid a global pandemic, and sensitivities in international relations, I am proud as well as deeply committed to the mission of CES in promoting scholarly exchanges and advancing the science of economics.

In addition to bringing you our flagship CES programs such as the CES conferences and forums, CES/AEA joint sessions, Gregory-Paula Chow Teaching Fellowship, and Gregory-Paula Chow Best Paper Awards, we are also launching new initiatives to serve our members and the CES community.

In particular, we will be hosting a series of Deans’ Symposiums where we bring together Chinese and international scholars and administrators to discuss topics of interests and concerns to our community. To encourage and support young scholars’ research, we will add conference sessions, and research awards dedicated to graduate students. We will also offer various training workshops, which have gained substantial popularity among our members.

Below please find a list of some of our planned events and activities:

- 2020 Deans’ Symposium I, Saturday, Dec. 5th, 2020 (Beijing Time), online delivery for discussions on recruiting and retaining talent for the unusual job market season ahead, training sessions for job candidates, and meet and greet with Chinese schools’ recruiting teams.
- 2021 CES sessions at the ASSA meeting in Chicago, IL, USA, January 3-5, 2021, online delivery.
- 2021 CES North America Conference, spring 2021, joint with Huazhong University of Science and Technology, including Deans’ Symposium II, dedicated sessions for graduate student research and CES awards for best papers.

We will continue to monitor the global pandemic and assess feasibilities for CES China conference and Presidential Forum (summer 2021).  Please check email as well as follow our WeChat account for the most recent updates and announcements.
