China's Financial Markets
LL.M Course 705 (cross-listed) | 2 credit hours
The rise of China as a major economic and commercial power is one of the most significant events in recent history. In the coming years, Chinese companies and financial institutions will increasingly expand their presence into the global marketplace, while foreign firms and investors will continue to seek access to ever-expanding Chinese markets. In conjunction with its growing integration and influence in the world economy, China will play an increasingly significant role in those international organizations governing the global financial system such as the International Monetary Fund, the G20 and the Financial Stability Board. For those lawyers and business leaders wishing to engage in commercial ventures with China, as well as those policymakers and financial regulators engaging with China on economic and financial matters, it is crucial to have a firm understanding China’s financial markets. Furthermore, for anyone wishing to understand China’s rise and, more importantly, the prospects for China’s continued economic and commercial success, it is necessary to understand both the major developments and persistent weaknesses of China’s financial sector.
