China Finance Review International Conference

To promote China-related financial research globally, China Finance Review International Journal and Antai College of Economics & Management, Shanghai Jiao Tong University co-organize the China Finance Review International Conference (CFRIC). CFRIC provides a high-quality academic exchange platform, where finance scholars and practitioners worldwide can share their in-depth research on important finance issues in China and exchange ideas on new developments in finance research, with the ultimate goal of reforming China's financial system and encouraging financial innovation in China.
