Call for papers

The third annual Bank of Canada-University of Toronto Conference on the Chinese Economy will be held on September 29-30, 2017 at the Institute for Management & Innovation (IMI), University of Toronto Mississauga. This conference aims to provide researchers and policy-makers the opportunity to discuss theoretical and empirical perspectives on China’s recent economic growth experience and its implications for the global economy.

While we are particularly interested in papers related to China’s potential transition from production-based growth to innovation-based growth or from “made in China” to “created in China”, we welcome papers in all areas of economics relating to the Chinese economy.


Authors are invited to submit theoretical and empirical papers on the above-mentioned topics. Submissions must consist of either a full paper (preferred) or an extended abstract and should be sent in PDF format to

The submission deadline is July 1, 2017.

Authors of accepted papers will be notified by July 20, 2017.


The organizers will cover reasonable travel and accommodation expenses for paper presenters.
