We are having a cool conference in Beijing this coming weekend, October 29-30, 2011. Day-1 will be fancy show at the Beijing International Hotel. The occasion is the 10th anniversary of China's entry into the World Trade Organization (WTO). In attendance will be several WTO representatives, officials from various governments, international trade lawyers (my favorite), business execs, and scholars. On Day 2, we will move the meeting north to the campus of the University of International Business & Economics, and turn our attention to 11 working papers produced through the RCCPB's Initiative on China and Global Governance.
We've had a great response rate so far, with lots of folks registered. You can still try and reserve a spot, but if not successful, you can at a minimum get copies of the related working papers.
We're proud to have several co-conspirators in this venture. Our co-organizer is the University of International Business & Economics China Institute for WTO Studies, and Caixin Media is our exclusive Chinese media partner. Of course, anyone from the media is welcome to attend, cover the event, and interview the participants.
