The annual International Workshop on Economic Analysis of Institutions is part of the effort by WISE and SOE at Xiamen University to establish a leading research center in institutional economics in the Asia Pacific region.

The economics disciplines in Xiamen University were first established in 1921 and have a long tradition of excellence in teaching and research, with a focus on the role of institutions in economic and social development. Mr. Wang Yanan, the former President of Xiamen University for 19 years and the renowned economist who translated Adam Smith's Wealth of the Nation and Karl Marx's Das Kapital into Chinese, guided the rapid development of economics disciplines in XMU since 1949.

In May of 1982, China's State Education Ministry approved the elevation of the Department of Economics to the School of Economics, making it the first school of economics established among top universities in mainland China since 1980. In 2005, the Wang Yanan Institute for Studies in Economics (WISE) was founded, as a recent effort by Xiamen University to build a first class modern economics research institute and to facilitate international research and academic exchanges. Currently, SOE and WISE are working close together to promote Xiamen University as one of the major centers for economic research and education in Asia Pacific. For more information about WISE and SOE, please see: http://wise.xmu.edu.cn/english/index.asp,

and http://se.xmu.edu.cn/English/default.aspx.   

Located in Southeast China with convenient direct flights to many major cities in Asia, Xiamen is famous for its resort like atmosphere and has a reputation as the cleanest and most livable Chinese city. Interesting places near Xiamen include the UNESCO World Heritage Hakka Earth Buildings, Gulangyu (Piano Island) and Wuyi Mountain.
