Dr. Qian has published many papers in Japan and China’s academic journals in recent years. Her paper (Market Formation and Labor Mobility in China-Exploring a New Role in Rural Enterprise) in the famous Japanese academic journal “World Economic Review” uses cross-study methodology to expand the famous “Lewis model” (Dual Sector model) with the introduction of culture and education as well as other important factors of economic development into a new theoretical framework. It also analyzes the characteristics of resources mobility in the process of China’s industrialization together with Japan’s development experience. The theoretical innovation and practical results of this paper has proved its great academic value not only to the study of development economics, but also to the research on culture, education and economics.

Dr. Qian’s paper published in Jiangsu, China’s top tier journal, (Relationship between culture development and industrial structure transformation-Suzhou’s practice and Japan’s experience) was a designated conference paper in the “9th Chinese economists forum”. Her work, equipped by original academic view and innovative methodologies, investigates and analyzes the relationship between cultural development and structural transformation in economic growth. It also points out the effects and experience of education in Japan’s economic development, which is very valuable for China’s development into a harmonious society in the internal context.
