KIEP sponsors the Asian Economic Panel (AEP) in collaboration with the Earth Institute (EI) at Columbia University and the Global Security Research Center (GSEC) at Keio University. The steering committee of AEP consists of Jeffrey Sachs (Director of EI), Wook Chae (President of KIEP) and Eisuke Sakakibara (Director of GSEC). AEP invites about 50 economists from around the world (particularly from Asia) to meet twice a year to discuss issues that are important to sub-regions of Asia or individual Asian countries. The proceedings of each AEP meeting are edited and published in a journal, The Asian Economic Papers, three times a year by MIT Press. Currently, Bokyeong Park (Research Fellow at KIEP) and Wing Thye Woo (Professor, University of California at Davis) serve as co-managing editors.
The main objective of this joint research is to provide policy suggestions and consulting advice to governments of China, Japan and Korea in order to enhance trilateral economic cooperation. This project was launched following an agreement between the leaders of the three countries at the historic Manila Summit Meeting in November 1999. The main purpose of this year’s study is to examine the current status of economic cooperation between the three countries and assess the progress made in the past ten years. Based on the study results, the joint research team will suggest concrete policy proposals to the leaders of the three countries to enhance economic cooperation among them. The Institute of Developing Economies, Japan External Trade Organization (IDEJETRO) of Japan and the Development Research Center (DRC) of the State Council of China are KIEP’s partners in this project.
Based on the Communique of the bilateral summit meeting held in July 2003, the Korean and Chinese governments agreed to carry out official joint research on the issues and prospects of trade and economic cooperation between the two countries. KIEP and Academy of Macroeconomic Research of China’s NDRC represent each part of this joint research initiative.
Center for Regional Economic Studies (CRES) has launched a Visiting Fellows Program to strengthen the organization’s research capacity and build an international network of researchers and fellows from all over the world with interest in regional economies. Under this program, CRES invites many qualified researchers in regional studies from a number of economies and provides valuable opportunities for publishing working papers. * For further information, see http://www.kiep.go.kr/eng/cres_info.asp
