We invite you to join our latest ACCA Asia Pacific Interest Group gathering to hear from our guest speaker, Yong Jortzik-Yan, on the major economic trends in the Asia-Pacific region and considerations regarding the major risk factors to APEC's growth going forward. She will touch on the implications of the liberalisation of the Chinese capital account and RMB's internationalisation.
Dr Yong Jortzik-Yan
Manager, Economic Modelling
Yong has considerable policy-making and analytical experience in the area of economic analysis. Over the past 10 years, she has worked in research, policy advising and project consulting at two of Australia’s public institutions, academia and in the private sector.
Currently, Yong is a manager of KPMG's Government Advisory Services, providing advice, or solutions to, economic policy issues through the application of quantitative techniques to a wide range of clients including both government, corporate and financial services sectors
Prior to joining KPMG, Yong spent five years at the Australian Treasury, where she provided policy advice on a range of economy-wide issues including Australia’s monetary setting, optimal fiscal policy strategy and policy implications of financial markets developments.
Yong was born in Kashigar, the western end of China's Old Silk Road and her interest in the Asian economies is long and deep. Her doctoral thesis examined the efficiency of Chinese financial markets, theoretically as well as empirically. This work challenged the conventional thinking around the dynamics between stock prices and exchange rate in the Chinese economy. In Yong's current role within KPMG, part of her work is to provide economic analysis and advice related to inbound and outbound investment in Asia, especially in China.
