EAI (Conference Partner)


The East Asian Institute (EAI) was set up in April 1997 as an autonomous research organization under a statute of the National University of Singapore. It is the successor of the former Institute of East Asian Political Economy (IEAPE). The main mission of EAI is to promote both academic and policy-oriented research on East Asian development, particularly the political, economic and social development of contemporary China (including Hong Kong and Taiwan), and China's growing economic relations with the region and the world at large, including Japan, Korea and ASEAN. EAI's long-term vision is to develop into the region's foremost research institution on East Asian development. While its initial focus is on contemporary China, the Institute may in future extend its research efforts to Japan and Korea as it builds up its resources.
