Yutao’s research will extensively discuss the implications of structural reforms in China's economy and China's macroeconomic strategy. He aims to draw an economic map of China's structural reforms’ strategy from the macro lens. A better understanding of China's economy in the post-crisis era will be generated by conducting a mixed-method approach.                Based on the quasi-natural experiment method, the research on the relationship between economic structural reform and micro enterprise adjustment will explore the performance difference between state-owned enterprises and private sectors in economic reform. In addition, how China's outbound investment strategy represented by the Belt And Road has influenced the economies of participating countries, especially in Eastern Europe and Central Asia will be investigated. 

About the speaker:

Yutao’s interests centres on the intersection of economics and political science, which has led him to track how political changes affect macroeconomic policy adjustments and, thus, corporate performance. His current work assesses the effect of macroeconomic policy adjustment on enterprise performance in the post-crisis era, focusing on China.
