China's capital account liberalisation: international perspective

Joint seminar of the State Administration of Foreign Exchange and the Bank for International Settlements on "China's capital account liberalisation: international perspective", Beijing, China, 12-13 September 2002.

This joint BIS/SAFE seminar on "Capital account liberalisation in China: international perspectives" was held on 12-13 September 2002 in Beijing, China. Seminar participants from outside China were mostly experienced practitioners and policymakers from 13 economies across four continents. Chinese participants consisted mainly of staff from the State Administration of Foreign Exchange, the People's Bank of China and the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. The main aim of the seminar was to draw on the diverse international experiences in managing cross-border capital flows and to shed light on how China should proceed to implement capital account liberalisation in the years ahead, following its recent historic entry into the WTO.

The papers presented at the conference were published as BIS Papers No 15 in April 2003.
