   Nobel Laureate of Joint Opening Ceremony

Dr. Christopher A. Pissarides
Regius Professor,  London School of Economics, Economics Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences, 2010, UK

Dr.  Edward C. Prescott
Professor,  Arizona State University; Chair, W. P. Carey, The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2004, USA

Sir Christopher Pissarides is the Regius Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics, a Professor of European Studies at the University of Cyprus and Chairman of the Council of National Economy of the Republic of Cyprus, and the Helmut & Anna Pao Sohmen Professor-at-Large of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. He was educated at the University of Essex and the London School of Economics (LSE), and he spent the bulk of his career at the LSE. He had long visits in the US Universities of Harvard, Princeton and California at Berkeley.
Sir Christopher specialises in the economics of labour markets, macroeconomic policy, economic growth and structural change. He was awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize in Economics, jointly with Dale Mortensen of Northwestern University and Peter Diamond of MIT, for his work in the economics of markets with frictions. Prior to that, in 2005, he became the first European economist to win the IZA Prize in Labor Economics, sharing it again with his collaborator Dale Mortensen. He has written extensively in professional journals, magazines and the press and his book Equilibrium Unemployment Theory is an influential reference in the economics of unemployment that has been translated in many languages. He is frequently quoted in the press on issues concerning the Eurozone and the future of European integration.
He is an elected Fellow of the British Academy, the Academy of Athens, the Academia Europaea and several other learned societies, and he is a Lifetime Honorary Member of the American Economic Association. In 2011 he served as the President of the European Economic Association. In 2011 he received the Grand Cross of the Republic of Cyprus, the highest honour of the Republic. He was knighted in 2013.

Prescott was born in Glens Falls, New York, to Mathilde Helwig Prescott and William Clyde Prescott. In 1962, he received his bachelor's degree in mathematics from Swarthmore College, where he was a member of the Delta Upsilon fraternity. He then received a master's degree from Case Western Reserve University in operations research in 1963, and a PhD in Economics at Carnegie Mellon University in 1967.
From 1966 to 1971, Prescott taught at the University of Pennsylvania. He then returned to Carnegie Mellon until 1980, when he moved to the University of Minnesota, where he taught until 2003. In 1978, he was a visiting professor at the University of Chicago, where he was named a Ford Foundation Research Professor. In the following year, he visited Northwestern University and stayed there until 1982. Since 2003, he has been teaching at Arizona State University. In 2004, he held the Maxwell and Mary Pellish Chair in Economics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. In 2006, he held the Shinsei Bank Visiting Professorship at New York University.
The Research Papers in Economics project ranked him as the 19th most influential economist in the world as of August 2012 based on his academic contributions. Currently working as an economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis and as a professor at Arizona State University's W.P. Carey School of Business, he is a major figure in macroeconomics, especially the theories of business cycles and general equilibrium. In his "Rules Rather Than Discretion: The Inconsistency of Optimal Plans," published in 1977 with Finn E. Kydland, he analyzed whether central banks should have strict numerical targets or be allowed to use their discretion in setting monetary policy. He is also well known for his work on the Hodrick-Prescott Filter, used to smooth fluctuations in a time series. Prescott has also expressed skepticism towards fractional reserve banking.
Edward Prescott and Finn Kydland Nobel prize for economics was based on two papers Prescott and Kydland wrote. In the first paper, written in 1977 "Rules Rather than Discretion: : The inconsistency of optimal planning" Prescott and Kydland argue that purpose and goals of economic planning and policy is to trigger a desired response from the economy. However, Prescott and Kydland realized that these sectors are made up of individuals, individuals who make assumptions and predictions about the future. As Prescott and Kydland stated “Even if there is a fixed and agreed upon social objective function and policy makers know the timing and magnitude of the effects of their actions... correct evaluation of the end-of-point position does not result in the social objective being maximized.” Prescott and Kyland were pointing out that agents in the economy already factor into their decision making the assumed response by policy makers to a given economic climate.
    Keynote Speakers

Mr. Dennis Bracy

CEO, US-China Clean Energy Forum, USA

Mr. Jack Broadbent

Chief Executive Officer, Bay Area Air Quality Management District, USA

Dr. Jason .C.H. Shih

Adviser of BioResource International, Inc.;Professor Emeritus of North Carolina State University, USA

Dr. Florian Kongoli

CEO, FLOGEN Technologies Inc, Canada

Mr. Dewen Mei

President, China Beijing Environmental Exchange (CBEEX), China

Dennis Bracy counts himself fortunate to hold several fascinating jobs simultaneously: spearheading the team organizing the US-China Clean Energy Forum, heading Avatar Studios and helping lead the US-China Clean Energy Research Center, which was established by Presidents Hu Jintao and Barack Obama in November 2009. Combining a long-time commitment to strengthening US-China relations and a passion for finding solutions to global energy and environmental issues, Bracy has led the US team for the US-China Clean Energy Forum ( since the inception of the organization in 2007. Over the past 20 years, he has served as a key advisor to Senators, Governors and Members of Congress and is considered a leading strategist on political and public affairs issues. As Chairman of Avatar Studios (, he heads a company that produces television programs, videos and websites for clients around the world. In the early 1990s, Bracy led the team that developed the first prime-time television co-produced by foreigners in China and he continues to produce several documentaries and videos in China every year. His previous professional positions include president of Hill & Knowlton Technology, vice president of Kaiser Aluminum & Chemical Corporation, and press secretary for the Watergate trials.

Dr. Shih was born in China in 1939, educated in Taiwan, and earned his Ph.D. from Cornell University in USA. He worked his way from assistant professor to full professor at North Carolina State University until retirement (2009), In 2000, he and his son co-founded BioResource International, a biotechnology company. Dr. Shih pioneered the study of thermophilic anaerobic digestion, converting poultry waste into biogas energy with high efficiency. He established the “holistic farming” system, which integrates the productions of animal, biogas energy and organic fertilizer to achieve the goal of environment sustainability. During the operation of TAnD, Dr. Shih made the interesting discovery a feather-degrading keratinase enzyme. The follow-up studies proved: the enzyme is able to convert feathers into more digestible protein; as a feed additive, the enzyme significantly enhanced protein digestibility in feed; the enzyme is effective in degrading prion protein to prevent bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or mad cow disease. This series of studies from energy to enzyme have generated 10 international patents. Now the keratinase is produced in industrial scale and marketed worldwide. Dr. Shih has been honored with many national and international awards, including the WPSA Congress Scholarship with €10,000 cash (2008), and PSA Evonik Degussa Research Award (2008). The last two are the most prestigious honors in poultry science and Dr. Shih is the only scholar honored with both awards.
