Third CEAMeS Workshop on „Macroeconomic Development and Trade in East Asia”

In the last three years, the CEAMeS Workshop has taken a firm place in the yearly agends of the FernUniversität. After the second workshop took place in Xiamen, China, the third edition took place once more in Hagen, Germany. From May 9th until the 11th eleven speakers from three different countries presented their current research. After the welcoming speach of Prof. Dr. Ada Pellert, Rector of the FernUniversität in Hagen, and Prof. Dr. Helmut Wagner, Head of the CEAMeS Center at the FernUniversität in Hagen, several speeches focusing on the macroeconomic development in East Asia (especially China) were given.

Intensive conversations and discussions were the center of this year’s meeting in Hagen, which deepened the relationship between CEAMeS and its research fellows. “The three-day workshop was received very well by the audience and I think we are all very much looking forward to future collaborations”, Prof. Wagner summarized the workshop.

An important role during the meeting played the delegation of the “Center for Macroeconomic Research” from the Xiamen University in China. At the end of the workshop the head of this delegation, Prof. Min Gong, Deputy Director at the CMR, complimented the efficient organization of the workshop and announced that a delegation from CEAMeS is invited to return to Xiamen in 2020 for the fourth edition: “As soon as we are back home, the preparation for the next workshop will begin.”

“I think this invitation shows that the close relationship between CEAMeS and the Center for Macroeconomic Studies in Xiamen is highly sustainable. I am really looking forward to return to Xiamen University next year.”, Prof. Wagner responded to Prof. Min Gongs closing remarks.

The intensive exchange with international researchers has become one of the key elements of the Center during the last years. In June another workshop, which is co-organized by CEAMeS, will take place at the Westminster University in London, UK. Professor Schmerer points out that “presenting your own research in front of others is crucial for academic success. This event in London will be another great opportunity to sharpen the academic profile of University of Hagen and our Center abroad”.
