Fudan University in Shanghai invited a group of chief economists across China on Sept 23, to set global views and forecast China’s economic transformation.

Jiao Yang, Party secretary of Fudan, stressed the importance of hosting the forum and a gathering of top economists in the country.

She said in the face of China's far-reaching role around the world, it has become important to establish an economic disciplinary system designated for Chinese people.

"As a school with history and cultural deposits, Fudan is duty-bound to take over the host," Jiao said.

Chief economists including Chen Xiwen, former deputy director of the Central Rural Work Leading Group, and He Yafei, former vice-minister of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs spoke on the reform blueprint, development motivation, and new patterns in China's economy in the next five years.

Fourteen economists from local financing and securities institutions also brainstormed on various topics, such as new economy and innovative development, financial security and stability, and the future of real estate industry in the midst deepening urbanization.

The Fudan Chief Economist Forum has been held successfully at the campus for three consecutive times. It now serves as a national think tank forum, as well as an economic and financial development research platform for industry elites to exchange and share ideas.
