Singapore-China bilateral relationship enjoys sustained, rapid and sound development since the establishment of diplomatic relations in 1990. As a key national university in Singapore, Singapore Management University (SMU) aims to contribute to the Singapore-China bilateral co-operations by nurturing China-ready and bicultural graduates and engaging in China-related top-notch research projects. Over the past year, SMU has established a number of student exchanges, collaborative education programs and research projects with top Chinese universities. For example, SMU School of Social Sciences has set up a Joint Research Centre on Developmental Studies with Fudan University in April 2013. SMU School of Information Systems has partnered Peking University (PKU) School of Software and Microelectronics (SSM) on a Double-Degree Masters program since June 2013. SMU launched its China Forum which brought together political, business and academic leaders in Singapore on 13 Nov 2013. The forum addressed the latest political, economic and social trends taking place in China during the time of economic transition. Singapore Deputy Prime Minister Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam was the Guest-of-Honor in inaugurating the forum series. Prominent Chinese scholars from leading universities including Peking University, Fudan University and Southwest University of Finance and Economics participated in the high-profile 1-day event in Singapore. SMU Global Forum Series is a collaborative initiative between SMU and leading Chinese universities to provide a high-level dialogue platform for leaders from business, government and the wider community with academia on the key challenges and opportunities in China’s future development as well as to share Singapore’s experiences in managing its own transformation into one of the world’s most successful economies.  


新加坡管理大学-复旦大学 治理和发展国际论坛   As China embarks on an ambitious reform agenda under the new leadership to manage the many new challenges in its next phase of development such as urban transformations, environmental degradation, income gaps, social integration, management of natural resources, maintaining a stable financial environment and increasing demands for greater political accountability, the question of governance has become highly complex. In many ways, Singapore and many other countries face similar governance problems in their paths of development in a rapidly globalising and digital world. The SMU-Fudan Global Forum in Shanghai, where a number of social innovations and pilot schemes for trade liberation and financial reform have been introduced, brings together leading experts from the two universities, as well as senior government officials and business leaders to address the need for new forms of governance involving multiple stakeholders. Dr Liu Thai Ker, Singapore’s most well-known urban planner and a global thinker on issues related to urban change and development, is the Keynote Speaker at the Forum. He will share his thoughts on the experience of Singapore‘s urban transformation.  Dr Liu is Founding Chairman of the Advisory Board of the Centre for Liveable Cities in Singapore. He was past CEO of Singapore Housing & Development Board and Singapore Urban Redevelopment Authority. Dr Liu was Chairman of the design jury for the Beijing Olympic Master Plan competition in 2002. In addition to the Keynote address, there will be a roundtable on “Future Governance” and a special lunch panel on “Free Trade Zones and Special Economic Zones/industrial Parks” including the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone (FTZ). There are specialised panels in the afternoon cover the “Social Housing”, “Social Integration & Poverty”, “Managing Financial Turbulence - Lessons learnt on Financial Innovation from Lehman Minibond Crisis”.The SMU-Fudan Joint Research Centre will conduct a Joint Research Workshop to develop concrete research agenda in address these issues on 9 April 2014. Some of the key questions include:

  1. What are the implicationsof China’s reforms under the new leadership?
  2. How can business, government and civil society collaborate more effectively on Governance issues?
  3. How can major cities like Shanghai and Singapore become even more livable?
  4. To what extend the Singapore experienceis relevant for other countries?

Yang Yuliang
Yang Yuliang

Professor and Vice-President, Tsinghua UniversityBorn in Zhejiang, China, Professor Academician YANG Yuliang graduated from chemistry department of Fudan University in 1977 and received Ph.D. in 1984 from Fudan University. He worked as a post-doctor on macromolecular science at Max Planck Institute for Polymer research from 1986 to 1988. In 2003 Professor YANG was elected Member of Chinese Academy of Sciences.Professor Academician YANG was a faculty member of Fudan University before he was appointed Vice President for Research in 1999. In 2006, he was appointed Director General of the Department of Degree and Postgraduate Education, State Council of the People’s Republic of China. Professor Academician YANG serves as senior advisor to Shanghai Municipal Government. He inaugurated as President of Fudan University in January 2009.The academic interest of Professor Academician YANG is in condensed matter physics and polymer science. He owns a dozens of domestic and international patents and serves on the boards of several academic journals including Chinese Journal of Chemistry and Science in China. Professor Academician YANG has been rewarded with many titles and awards from home and abroad, including “Cheung Kong Scholar”, “National Scientific and Technological Progress Award” and “Qiushi Outstanding Scientist Award”. Professor Academician YANG leads the National “973” Project and National “863” Project. Professor Academician YANG has made major research results in several fields. He uses the extension and establishment of a new graphic theory to elucidate the static and viscoelastic behaviors of macromolecular chains with various topological structures and copolymerization configurations. By synchronizing the radio-frequency pulse with rotor positions, a new solid state NMR method has been developed to explore the correlations between structure, orientation and motion in macromolecular solids. He has been engaged in theoretical and experimental research on polymer physics including phase separation and pattern evolution of complex polymeric system, polyelectrolyte, polymer membrane, Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystals (PDLC) materials among the others by using the SCFT(self-consistent field theory) and TDGL(time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau) equations. A complete stochastic Monte Carlo method for simulating the molecular weight distribution (MWD) of the products resulted from various complicated polymerization reactions and related kinetic behaviors has been developed, which can be used to design the desired polymer chain micro-structures for improving the various physical properties. His research results were concluded in a book he edited titled Monte Carlo Methods in Polymer Science in 1993. In particular, during his two consecutive terms as Chief Scientist of National “973” Project, he achieved a vital innovation in the theoretical development of the stretching flow instability for polymer thin films. The success does not only solve a long-standing film-rupture problem which has impeded the mass and quality production of high-speed BOPP (biaxially oriented polypropylene), but also leads to tremendous proliferation of economic benefits and favorable reverberations from the polymer material industry. Professor Academician YANG has co-authored about 260 papers that are cited more than 1,150 times according to SCI and supervised about 30 Ph.D. candidates. He received Science and Technology Progress Award First Prize in 2003 from China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation and Science and Technology Progress Award Second Prize in 2004, Science and Technology Progress Award from Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation in 2007 and title of Outstanding Scientist Award from Qiushi Foundation in 2008.
