XIAO Geng Director, Brookings-Tsinghua Center, Tsinghua University.

"Xiao Geng obtained his B.S. degree in Management Sciences from the University of Science and Technology of China in 1985. In the same year, he became the first graduate student from the mainland China to enroll in the economics department at the University of California at Los Angeles. After UCLA, Dr. Xiao joined the newly established Socialist Economies Reform Unit at the World Bank and worked closely with the Bank's leading economists Lawrence Summers, Alan Gelb, I.J. Singh and Andrew Sheng on China's economic reform. With valuable policy research experiences at the World Bank, Geng moved to the University of Hong Kong in 1992, joining then the School of Economics to pursue his interest in studying and helping China. In 1996, following a sabbatical visit to Harvard, Geng was appointed as a Faculty Associate at Harvard Institute for International Development, working with HIID's leading development economists Jeffrey Sachs, Dwight Perkins and Wing Thye Woo. From Winter 2000 to Summer 2003, Xiao Geng was seconded to the Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong as Adviser and Head of Research, contributing to the Commission's major policy research on the development and regulation of the securities markets in Hong Kong and the mainland China. Dr. Xiao is one of the founders and the Deputy Director of the Institute for China and Global Development, a newly established cross-faculty research and training platform at the University of Hong Kong. He is also a member of the Asian Economic Panel, a regular policy research forum being held twice a year in U.S. and Asia and led by Jeffrey Sachs of the Earth Institute at Columbia University and other prominent economists in Asia."
