Scholars Assemble! Applied Microeconomists Share Academic Insights on Their Latest Research

The 1st Joint Hong Kong Empirical Microeconomics Workshop (HKEMW) 2021 was successfully held on June 11 and June 25. The workshop attracted a total of 40 scholars and students from local universities and the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business.

To facilitate cross-university interactions, HKU Business School joined hands with HKUST to kick start the HKEMW series. The event marks the first of its kind in Hong Kong since Covid-19 started, spearheaded by the Economic Area of HKU Business School, and chaired by Dr. Gedeon Lim, Dr. John Klopfer, and Dr. Sangyoon Park.

“The pandemic will not stop us from creating knowledge for the world. Through this workshop series, we aim to facilitate the interaction and exchange of ideas between economic scholars in Hong Kong, especially in times of coronavirus where there are few face-to-face events. This is a small step towards promoting cross-university knowledge exchange and fostering camaraderie among local scholars and I look forward to upcoming workshops hosted by our partner universities. In particular, we would like to thank colleagues at HKUST and Professor James Kung for his unwavering support. The event would not have been possible without their help.” said Dr. Lim.

Dr. Gedeon Lim, Assistant Professor at HKU Business School, presents the paper “Ethnic Segregation & Politics: Evidence from Malaysia”

A total of 15 papers from empirical micro-economists in Hong Kong covering diverse fields of economic development, political economy, economic history, media, health, productivity, labour, and matching were presented during the workshop. Insightful sharing and discussions were made among participants.

Dr. Bryant Kim, Associate Professor, HKUST presents the paper “Do Part-time Jobs Attract Less Productive Workers? Evidence from Field Experiment on Data Entry Clerks in Ethiopia”

The second session was hosted by HKUST on June 25 at LSKG012, G/F, Lee Shau Kee Business Building. The workshop will be a recurrent bi-weekly event, hosted by participating institutions, for academics in Hong Kong to exchange ideas.
