Prof. Xinyuan Chen gave the speech first. He said that high-quality development is the theme of China's economic and social development in the 14th Five-Year Plan and even in a longer period, and it concerns the overall situation of China's socialist modernization construction. With the themes of Environmental Regulation under the Double Targets for Carbon Emissions and Labor Market under High Quality Development, the workshop discussed the frontier issues of applied economics such as double targets for carbon emissions, green finance, carbon market, gender difference, health and medical care, and labor market. The discussion of these research topics will help to promote the high quality development of China's economy.
