SMU-SWUFE GLOBAL FORUM ON MANAGING ECONOMIC TRANSITIONS: PERSPECTIVE FROM CHINA AND SINGAPORE

SMU SWUFE

SMU GLOBAL FORUM SERIES

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.

自1990年新加坡和中国正式建立外交关系以来,双方一直保持着持续、快速和良好的发展。新加坡管理大学(新大)作为新加坡重点国立大学之一,希望通过培养具备双元文化的杰出人才和与中国顶尖的科研项目合作来为新中双边交流奉献自己的一份力量。

在过去一年里,新大已经和中国多所顶尖大学建立了合作伙伴关系,其中包括学生交换、合作教育计划以及联合研究项目等。在2013年4月,新大社会科学学院和复旦大学成立了联合发展研究中心。新大信息系统学院与北京大学软件与微电子学院自2013年6月起,就开展了双硕士学位项目。

新大首届中国论坛于2013年11月在新加坡成功举行,此次论坛联合了政商媒学各界人士,在中国处在经济转型的关键时期,对当今政治格局、经济发展以及社会建设的最新趋势进行了深入的分析和讨论。新加坡副总理尚达曼先生作为主礼嘉宾出席了该论坛,以及分别来自北京大学、复旦大学和西南财经大学的著名学者们在这为期一天的论坛里发表了精彩的演讲。

新大国际论坛专题是由新大和中国顶尖大学共同发起,为商业领袖、政策制定者、更广泛的利益群体和研究者们提供了一个高层次对话平台,探讨中国未来发展所面临的机遇和挑战,分享新加坡本身成为世界上最成功的经济体之一的经济转型经验。

SMU-SWUFE GLOBAL FORUM

ON MANAGING ECONOMIC TRANSITIONS

PERSPECTIVE FROM CHINA AND SINGPAORE

 

Almost a year after the Decision of the CPC Central Committee on Major Issues Concerning Comprehensively Deepening Reform was announced at the Third Plenary Session of the Eighteenth CPC Central Committee in November 2013, there is an increasing concern on whether China can keep up with its fast economic growth amidst the comprehensive reform efforts. Major factors weighing down on China’s economic growth engine include challenges faced by the Chinese real estate industry, overinvestment and excess production capacity in selected industries. There is an opportunity to further reform China logistic industry and optimize both logistic financing and internet finance in order to unleash further economic growth in various regions including the Western China.

Given Singapore’s past experience in upgrading its economy, Singapore Management University (SMU) and Southwest University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE) are co-organising the Global Forum on “Managing Economic Transition: Perspectives from China and Singapore” in Chengdu, China. The forum congregates leading scholars both universities, government officials, business leaders to discuss issues relating to China’s economic transition, including how certain aspects of the Singapore experience could be relevant to China’s context.  It will also share findings from the latest research on China real estate industry, case-studies in logistic management and logistic financing. The forum will also look at the broad social consequences related the economic transition in China.

This forum will feature distinguished speakers like Tsinghua University’s Prof LIU Hongyu who is Chairman of Specialist Committee of Housing Policy (Ministry of Housing and Urban Rural Development). Prof Liu also shared his views on housing policy with top China leaders in October 2013. It also features Texas A&M’s Prof GAN Li who is Director of China Household Finance Survey (CHFS) which has been actively followed by both leading scholars and media since 2009.  We are honored to invite YCH Group’s Dr Robert YAP who is also President of Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF). YCH is the largest Singapore 3PL industry player and a world-acclaimed pioneer in 7PL with operations in 11 countries.

Key questions to be addressed at the forum:

  1. What is the current health of the Chinese economy?
  2. What is the next stage of the Chinese real estate industry?
  3. How do further reform the logistics industry to fuel more economic development in various regions?
  4. What are the new opportunities in Sino-Singapore economic partnership?
  5. The relevance of the Singapore economic development experience in China?

  自从2013年11月中共十八届三中全会提出关于全面深化改革若干重大问题的决定已经将近一年的时间,人们越来越关注全面深化改革是否会影响经济发展持续增长的步伐。今年以来,在房地产市场调整、产能过剩及过度投资等因素影响下,中国经济下行压力增大。中国正处在经济转型的拐点阶段,如何调整和稳定经济改革所面临的种种问题,如中国房地产市场出现“量价齐跌”、“房地产泡沫”等现象已经成为经济转型期的主要问题之一,以及如何推动中国物流业改革来促进地区发展,如何以物流金融以及互联网金融产业来带动整体的经济发展尤其以中国西部为例等热点问题是此次论坛重点讨论所在。

新加坡在本身的快速国际化及经济发展中面经历过许多相似的管理问题,中国西南财经大学和新加坡管理大学在成都联合举办的“经济转型期的管理-以中国及新加坡为例”国际论坛,通过最新房地产研究调查、物流管理和物流金融等案例,汇集了两所大学的权威专家,政府高级官员和商业领袖,参考新加坡发展经验,以中国西部做点,贯彻全国成线,纵横交错为面,来共同探讨经济改革中所面临的问题。论坛同时会以东南亚地区在经济转型过程中的人口结构变化和老龄化等问题的挑战。

此次论坛的主讲嘉宾分别为刘洪玉教授,中国住房和城乡建设部住房政策专家委员会主任委员、清华大学恒隆房地产研究中心主任、土木水利学院副院长,2013年10月为中央政治局集体学习就加快推进住房保障体系和供应体系建设进行讲解。甘犁教授,美国德克萨斯农工大学经济学终身教授、中国西南财经大学经济与管理研究院院长、中国家庭金融调查与研究中心主任,2009年,甘犁教授发起并领导了中国家庭金融调查,该调查具有全国代表性,详细纪录了中国家庭的资产信息。此项调查的完成引起了国内及国际上的广泛关注与讨论。叶进国博士,叶水福集团主席兼首席执行官、新加坡全国雇主联合会会长,叶水福集团是新加坡最大和知名度最高的第三方物流和供应链解决方案提供商和运营商之一,在无缝一体化供应链执行策略方面所创的7PL(第七方物流)模式获得业界广泛认可,物流服务网络覆盖东南亚、大中华地区和澳大利亚等11个国家的主要经济城市。

论坛会涉及到的一些关键问题为:

  1. 中国现阶段经济的健康情况?
  2. 中国房地产未来投资发展趋势?
  3. 如何推进中国物流业改革来加快促进各区域的经济发展?
  4. 解析中新经贸合作的新机遇?
  5. 可否以新加坡发展经验为案例应用到中国或其他国家和地区?
  6. 东南亚国家在转型经济中发生的社会和人口问题?
