Administrative History

The Research Programme on Ethnicity and Overseas Chinese Economies (RPEOCE) was established in 1998 through a donation received from 香港崇正總會. Its major mission was to put forward, from multi-disciplinary perspectives, the understanding, analysis and education about overseas Chinese and ethnical studies. It attempted to focus on the study of Chinese dialect groups and overseas Chinese economies, both of which play a pivotal role in the economic development of countries which are homes to many overseas Chinese. The operation of RPEOCE suspended from 2001 onwards.

The person who had been appointed as the director of RPEOCE is Professor CHANG Chak-Yan (鄭赤琰教授), 1991-1996
