At the opening ceremony, Professor Li Guangzhong, Deputy Dean of Business School, announced the opening of the international finance conference. He pointed out that relying on the national “double first-class” construction, the international academic influence of the school has been gradually increasing, delivering a large number of high-level talents to the society and providing important intellectual support in serving the national and local economic and social development. Professor Jonathan Batten, editor-in-chief of Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions and Money, shared his experience in writing and submitting papers. He encouraged everyone to do universal and small-scale research in the world and put forward their own opinions on the research of emerging markets. Professor Wu Zhenyu from University of Manitoba in Canada gave a brief introduction to the contribution and acceptance of papers for this session and hoped that everyone would continue to contribute enthusiastically to support the development of the conference.

During the two-day conference paper report, scholars exchanged and discussed many international financial frontier research issues such as financial institutions, cross-border mergers and acquisitions, capital markets in emerging countries, financial market liquidity, and industrial policies. At the meeting, interesting research questions, clever research design and wonderful display received applausse and favorable comments from the teachers and students attending the meeting. The successful convening of this conference has set up a high-end academic exchange platform for domestic and foreign financial scholars. It has a good international influence on promoting the development of the school’s financial discipline and is of great significance in promoting the development of our country’s financial research and international academic exchange.
