Sponsors of the two-day event, which had 26 rounds of discussions, were Shandong University and the HK association. In addition to China's economy, they covered trade and foreign direct investment, network economics, the real estate market and property rights and regulations.

Avinash Dixit, professor of economics at Princeton University, addressed the opening ceremony with a talk on "How to use commercial institutions to fight corruption", where he said that government needs to combine punishment with incentive, to resist commercial corruption.

In commenting on the conference, Lin Ping, president of the HK association, said it helps increase communications between economists from around the world and gives foreign experts a better understanding of China's economic development.
