On the morning of April 26th, the 3rd lecture of Bai Qingxian Lecture by Overseas Prestigious Scholars was held at Puhe Campus of Liaoning University, where Professor Fan Haichao from Fudan University was invited to give a lecture. Before he started, Professor Yu Miaojie, Deputy Secretary of the CPC Committee and President of Liaoning University introduced Professor Fan. The lecture was attended by over 80 teachers and students from China Open Economy Research Institute, Li Anmin Institute of Economic Research and School of Finance and Trade of Liaoning University and was presided over by Professor Ma Xiangjun, Vice Dean of both China Open Economy Research Institute and School of Finance and Trade.   







Themed on ‘Tariff Fluctuation and Carbon Emissions’, Professor Fan shared three facts of China’s increase in carbon dioxide emissions, China-US trade frictions as well as China’s status as the world’s largest carbon dioxide emitter.Through data analysis, he found that after trade friction, the carbon emission intensity increased significantly in cities that were more vulnerable to tariff shocks. And due to the simultaneous decrease of domestic sales and exports, the overall carbon emissions did not increased significantly and the impact of trade frictions on carbon emissions was mainly manifested in the increase of carbon emission intensity. He believed that as China-US trade frictions increased the intensity of carbon emissions in cities and enterprises, the government could relax environmental supervision to reduce the cost of carbon emissions and redistribute resources from exports to domestic sales which use less clean technologies. He noted that the two ways were of great significance to understand global pollution in the era of non-globalization. Professor Fan’s research is of huge practical significance and greatly supplements the existing literature. He answered the questions raised by teachers and students and they learned a lot from the lecture.   

After the lecture, Professor Ma Xiangjun presented Professor Fan with a commemorative certificate of Bai Qingxian Lecture by Overseas Prestigious Scholars and student representative from the School of Finance and Trade presented flowers to him.
