First Global Regional Development conference, December 3-5, 2021, Shenzhen Greater Bay Area, China

Dear TRSA members & friends:

Tomorrow will be the start of the First Global Regional Development conference on: “SUSTAINABLE REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT, DIGITAL CITY RESILIENCE AND SUCCESSFUL LOCAL LEADERSHIP”, to be held in Shenzhen Greater Bay Area, China, from December 3-5, 2021.

You are cordially invited to participate online in this prestigious and international event, which is co-organized with The Regional Science Academy and Tsinghua University, Beijing.  The hybrid form (rather than an online meeting) has been chosen due to the current corona regulations in many countries,

with a large group of Chinese scholars meeting physically in Shenzhen and a scattered group of overseas participants meeting in their home office. 

We are pleased to inform you that Professor Paul Romer, Nobel laureate in economics, will give a keynote lecture and join the interesting Round Table discussion on Friday, December 3, 2021 at 22.00 (Beijing time), while also Sameh Naguib Wahba, Global Director for Urban and Territorial Development, Disaster Risk Management and Resilience of the World Bank, and many other well-known speakers, will join.

We have great pleasure in sending you herewith the final programme. It promises to become an exciting event with a great audience. Despite the corona limitations, the conference promises to become a scientific highlight which will set the tone for innovative thinking on new regional and urban development concepts and practices. We all look forward to meeting you tomorrow and to continue our cooperation in the coming years.

We will be pleased and honoured to have you with us in this First Global Conference. 

Cordially yours,

Karima Kourtit, also on behalf of Peter Nijkamp and Chinese hosts.
