The more ambitious (or broader) aim of the center is to establish an international network of researchers, bringing together experts on China, macro-economists and trade-economists interested in East Asian economies. Hence, the center will establish and organize an annual international workshop on East Asian and Chinese economic studies. The workshop will offer the possibility for researchers to disseminate their work or to meet international scholars, thus fostering collaborations with external research partners. The Center will also create an online platform containing general information and references of the most recent academic work on East Asian macroeconomic studies. It will also gather information on the research activities on East Asian and Chinese economies, such as international conferences, academic events or policy debates. Finally, the Center will also host researchers from other universities and research centers associated with CEAMeS.
