Xu Fang announced the launch of China Financial Risk Report 2016 blue book at the forum, and briefly introduced its structure. Yin Zhichao, dean of CUEB School of Finance, introduced the main contents of the blue book. He pointed out that the book consisted of two parts. The first part comprised 9 research reports on study of China’s financial risks at macro and micro levels; the second part compiled 7 high-level academic papers that researchers published in domestic and foreign authoritative journals last year. Specifically, the research reports explored China’s macro and micro level financial risks from international and domestic perspectives. From the international perspective, the reports focused on five aspects: China's international capital flow risks, global stock market performanceand risks, inspiration from the experience of Japanese Yen to the internationalization of RMB under the new SDR framework, correlation of financial indicators in the down cycle of oil price, monetary policies and subject risks of financial market. From the domestic perspective, the reports focused on issues related to asset allocation risks in China, asset quality of commercial banks, risks of China's stock market and equity derivative market, and risks and preventions of China's equity-based crowd-funding.
After the launch of the blue book, scholars conducted heated and profound discussions on the views and arguments of the blue book at the subsequent financial risks summit forum.
Edmond Alphandéry indicated that the Eurosis was rooted in the fact that the member states of the Eurozone had full sovereignty over their financial policies and did not form a real alliance. He then argued that Japan's liquidity trap is not applicable to China through a comparison of economic data between China and Japan.
