Prof. dr. Haico Ebbers
Prof. Dr. Haico Ebbers is Professor of International Economics at Nyenrode Business Universiteit in The Netherlands. In his lectures, the emphasis is on the way economic transitions in many parts of the world will (re)shape the international landscape of companies and governments. He focuses on the rebalancing process that is happening in China and the China strategy of Western companies as reaction on this. He is considered as one of the key China specialists in The Netherlands and well-known for his contributions in the discussion related to China in the Dutch media. In his latest publications the focus is specifically on China’s integration in the World economy, in particular its relationship with the EU; through trade, investments and short term capital flows.
Up to 2007, the Chinese growth strategy resulted in economic success but at the same time in many imbalances. Today, it is clear that the problem is no longer how to achieve growth but how to manage the growth’s consequences. Step by step, the focus changed towards social goals in order to develop an inclusive society and to further modernize the economy. The key question is how actual implementation is happening.
Nyenrode Business Universiteit
Nyenrode Business Universiteit is one of the top business universities in The Netherlands, founded in 1946 by business and for business. This means that, besides knowledge, practical relevance is another important factor in everything they do in the field of education and research. Located inside the Nijenrode Estate, Nyenrode has traditionally been internationally oriented. The Nijenrode Estate, bordered by the Vecht River and the Amsterdam-Rhine Canel, is famous for its beautiful landscape with parks, a maze, gardens and centuries-old chestnut trees.
