During June 17-18, the 2019 Shanghai Microeconomics Workshop, sponsored by the SOE, the IAR and the Key Laboratory of Mathematical Economics (SUFE), Ministry of Education, was held at the SOE.  

A number of world-renowned scholars, including Professor Jordi Massó from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Professor Xianwen Shi from University of Toronto, and Professor Yusufcan Masatlioglu from University of Maryland attended and gave keynote speeches at the workshop. The workshop also attracted about 50 experts and scholars in the field of microeconomics from Stanford University, Yale University, Columbia University, the University of Melbourne, the University of Sydney, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Tsinghua University and Peking University. 

Professor Guoqiang Tian, Dean of SOE & IAR gave an opening speech. He first expressed a warm welcome to the guests on behalf of the SOE and shared the good news that SUFE Economics & Business ranks top 1% in ESI for the first time. He also introduced that the latest Tilburg University Economics Ranking based on high quality research publications from 2009 to 2018 in 35 respected economics journals placed the discipline of economics of SUFE 1st in China, 2nd in Asia and 69th worldwide. Particularly, the ranking of the discipline rose to 35th in the world in 2018, presenting a robust rising tendency of the economics discipline. 

At the end of his speech, Dean Tian called for active research and extensive communication. In the current increasingly complex international and domestic situation, he hopes that all participants can take academic discussion as an opportunity to enhance mutual understanding and lay a good foundation for the establishment of extensive and in-depth academic cooperation in the future, and jointly promote the development and innovation of microeconomics.

Under the guideline of "pursing long-term excellence and building up world-class disciplines", Shanghai Microeconomics Workshop has been held for 10 consecutive years. It not only creates a favorable academic environment to promote the interaction and dialogue between faculty and students of SOE and international academic leaders, but also establishes a platform for domestic and overseas academic colleagues to develop friendship and promote academic exchanges and cooperation. Our faculty and students have published many original theoretical research articles in the field of microeconomics in well-known economics journals, making SOE a well-known research center in the field of microeconomic theory in the Greater China Region.
