IMF Conference on Global Implications of China's Trade, Investment and Growth

This recent conference on the 7th April shows that there is considerable work being done on the global impact of China's trade, investment and growth. The papers are presented by, for the most part, well established and respected economists in this field.

Although I have come across the majority of these papers before it is handy to have them in one place. My experience of working on similar papers relates to the quality of the data. I have seen a number of these papers presented elsewhere and the issue of data quality remains in my opinion.

I have linked to the papers that I need to read more carefully.
