The first China Economics Summer Institute took place in 2008. The objective of the China Summer Economics Institute is to create a network and community of top level scholars working on Chinese economic development. This initiative is co-sponsored by UC Berkeley, the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, the LICOS-Center for Institutions and Economic Performance at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Hong Kong University and the School of Economics and Management at Tsinghua University. The Summer Institute was organized in collaboration with the BREAD, NBER and CEPR networks of academic economists.
