The Stanford Center for International Development (SCID) has established a Memorial Award and Lecture Series to celebrate the life and accomplishments of Dr. Kuo-Shu Liang, who was Governor of the Central Bank of Taiwan, 1975 – 79.

The second bi-annual event will take place at Stanford on December 8, 2011.  I’m happy to invite you to attend the lecture by Emeritus Professor WU Jinglian, who will be the invited recipient of the Kuo-Shu Liang Award and will deliver the Kuo-Shu Liang Memorial address, entitled:  “China’s Economic Achievements and Current Challenges”.

His fame makes lengthy introductions unnecessary; suffice to say that Professor Wu is considered one of the foremost Chinese economists of his time and a primary contributor to the progress of China’s economic reform.  His recent appointments include: Research Fellow of the Development Research Centre (DRC) of the State Council; Deputy Director of the Advisory Committee for State Informatization; Professor of CASS, Bejing University and CEIBS; Chief Editor Comparative Studies and the Journal of Legal and Economic Studies; and also Adviser to the Executive Committee of the International Economic Association (IEA).
He has been a visiting fellow or visiting professor at Yale, Oxford, Stanford and MIT.  Professor Wu received the Sun Yefang Award in Economics – China’s highest award for economic research – in 1984, 1986, 1988, 1990 and 1992.  He was honored by the International Academy of Management’s Award of Excellence in 2003; the China Economics Prize – Outstanding Contribution to China’s Economy Award in 2005; and the China Economic Theory Innovation Award in 2010.
