Haikou, P. R. China

The once-in-a-century international financial crisis has brought down economies of the developed world into serious recession. While on the other hand, emerging economies in general and BRICs in particular, which are still growing though at a much reduced pace, have become the main source of the world economic stability. Nevertheless, there have also appeared many doubts about whether the commonly vulnerable development model of emerging economies can be successfully transformed and whether they can remain to be a main source of the world's economic stability and main driving force for the world economic growth.

To facilitate the exchange of ideas on this issue among government officials and policy researchers from both the developing and developed world, China institute for Reform and Development (CIRD) and German Agency for Technical Cooperation (GTZ) will jointly organize an international symposium on "Emerging Economies in the Post-crisis Period" in Haikou, P. R. China on 31 Oct. and 1 Nov. 2009. Government officials and senior policy researchers will be invited from China, Germany, Russia, India, Brazil, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan to discuss in depth important topics of common concern such as "Deep-rooted Causes for the Serious Impacts of the International Financial Crisis on Emerging Economies and Their Internal Structural Imbalances", "Major Challenges for the Economic Development of Emerging Economies in the Post-crisis Period", "Core Objectives and Choice of Route for Transforming the Development Model of Emerging Economies in the Post-crisis Period", "Strategic Cooperation among Emerging Economies in the Post-crisis Period", etc.
