Crawford School graduate Professor Yiping Huang has been appointed to a top advisory role at the People’s Bank of China.

Professor Huang, Deputy Director of the National Centre of Development Studies (NCDS) at Peking University, will be one of three expert advisers to the central bank monetary policy committee, China’s State Council announced on Monday.

Huang got his PhD in economics from ANU in 1993 after which he served as a Research Fellow in what is now Crawford School of Public Policy before accepting a position as Chief Economist for Asia with Citigroup. He now holds a chair in NCDS at Peking University.

Professor Huang will be joined by economists Fan Gang, and Bai Chongen who have also been appointed as expert advisers to the Committee. Deputy Head of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) Lian Weiliang; Vice Finance Minister Shi Yaobin; the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) assistant governor Zhang Xiaohui; and head of China Banking Association Tian Guoli will also sit on the PBOC monetary policy committee, which is chaired by PBOC Governor Zhou Xiaochuan, according to the announcement.

Huang’s former PhD supervisor, Emeritus Professor Peter Drysdale, head of the East Asian Bureau of Economic Research at Crawford School, said that this was an important role at the People’s Bank of China.

“Huang’s appointment comes at a key time as China undertakes deep financial market and capital account reform, and his international experience and capability will be invaluable in guiding these Chinese reforms forward,” he said.
