Economics serving society

5th July “Emerging Economies” CEPII and PSE (G-MonD)

Centre d’analyse stratégique – 18, rue de Martignac – 75007 Paris
Conference room “Pierre Guillaumat”

This international workshop aims at confronting recent works on the role of emerging economies in the recent years. The increasing importance of developing countries in the world economy has recently drawn the attention of theoretical and applied economists, particularly concerning its implications in terms of economic growth, export patterns, labor markets and structural policies. This workshop intends to open up the discussion on

  • (i) the characteristics and determinants of labor markets in emerging economies
  • (ii) the effects of India’s structural reforms on manufacturing firms’ performance
  • (iii) the macro and micro-economic determinants of China’s economic growth and export boom.
    The workshop is composed of four sessions.
