Professor and Executive Dean of the Faculty of the Professions, The University of Adelaide, Australia. His research interests centres on Australia’s economic relations with Asia, including topics such as services trade and investment reform and industrialisation of the Chinese economy and the impact of industrialisation in East Asia on the Australian economy.
Professor Findlay was a principal researcher in a major research program on impediments to services trade and investment. In the first three years of the program, innovative methods were established to assess and measure the impact of the impediments. The methodology provided estimates of tariff equivalents of barriers to forms of services sector transactions and led to the incorporation of those estimates into general equilibrium models. A book on this work was published in 2000. The second three years of this program, funded like the first by the ARC, focused on the impact of domestic regulation on services trade and investment and has led to two new collections of papers published in 2002 and 2003. His previous appointments included Head of School of Economics at the Faculty of the Professions, University of Adelaide and Professor of Economics at the Australian National University.
In the 3rd Indonesia Research Day, Prof. Findlay will talk about Trade in Services as agent of chance – Indonesian experience.
