Welcome from the Director

        Centre for China Financial Research (CCFR) was established in the year 2001 and it is an inter-disciplinary research centre within the Faculty of Business and Economics of The University of Hong Kong (HKU). CCFR has an open-architecture structure and it has active members from various departments in HKU. The goal of CCFR is to facilitate research on securities markets, banking, and financial policies of China and to provide a platform linking academic researchers with the government and the business community. CCFR also has established working relationships with well-known research institutions in China as well as the rest of the world.

        As the director of CCFR, I welcome researchers interested in China’s financial sector to have collaboration with us in different forms. Your suggestions and comments for improving the work of CCFR are also most welcome and appreciated.
