Hu Angang

Hu Angang was born in 1953. He is one of the pioneers and leading authorities in the realm of Contemporary China Studies. He now serves as the Dean of Institute for Contemporary China Studies and Professor of School of Public Policy and Management at Tsinghua University. He is also a member of the Advisory Committee for the Thirteenth and Twelfth Five-Year Plans under National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), a member of the Advisory Committee of the National Disaster Mitigation Committee and a member of the Advisory Committee under Ministry of Agriculture. He was elected as the representative of the 18th CCP National Congress in 2012.

Hu Angang earned his Ph.D. degree in Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1988. He conducted his postdoctoral research at Yale University from 1991-1992. He was awarded Honorary Doctor of Economics by Russia Institute of Far Eastern Studies. He has been a visiting scholar or researcher at the International Research Center, School of Humanities at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Harvard Kennedy School, the East Asia Research Institute of Columbia University, the Development and Research Institute of World Bank, the China Study Center of French School of Social Sciences and Humanities, the Public Management School of Keio University, the Civilization Study Center of Tokyo Institute of Technology, the Asia Study Center of Waseda University, the Department of Economics at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the China Study Center at Oxford University.

Hu was awarded the Chinese Doctoral Scholar with Outstanding Contribution (1991), the Youth Entrust of National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) (1994), the First Prize of Science and Technology Progress Awards of the China Academy of Science (1996、1997), Third Award of the State Science and Technology Progress Awards (1998), Sun Yefang Economic Papers Prize (2000), Fudan Distinguished Contribution Award for Management (2008), the Second Prize of the 7th Excellent Research in Humanities and Social Sciences (2015).

Hu has continuously published series of contemporary China studies monographs, co-authored books and edited books. His latest works are 2050 China: Comprehensively Achieve Socialist Modernization (2017), China: Entering the Center of the World (2017), Contemporary China and China’s Development (2016), China’s New Idea: Five Development Concept (2016), China: Decisive Achievements of Century Goals (2016), The Grand Strategy of China’s 13th Five-year Program (2015), Super China (2015), New Think Tank with Chinese Characteristics : Hu Angang’s Views (2014), Collective Presidency in China (2013), China: Innovative Green Development (2012), 2020 China: Build a Moderately Prosperous Society in an All-round Way (2012) and 2030 China: Towards Common Affluence (2011).

John Thornton, chairman of the Board of Directors of the Brookings Institution in the United States, commented: Professor Hu has advised the Chinese leadership directly and is frequently consulted by a wide range of senior officials at both the central and provincial levels. The government has drawn on his expertise in drafting the five-year development plans that serve as the main road map for economic policy. Intense, analytical, and emotional, Professor Hu gives the impression of keeping a tight lid on a potential overflow of ideas and energy. He is an inexhaustible seeker of data and insight, always oriented toward the future. No Chinese thinker has a better record of predicting the pace and direction of the country’s development. When he is certain, he is bold. He is of the school that would prefer to be generally right than precisely wrong. He is probably China’s most versatile and pragmatic economist.
