A leading Chinese economist will spend a month in Chicago to help highlight economic ties between the city and China.

The Chicago Council on Global Affairs announced Monday that Yu Yongding is its 2013 Dr. Scholl Foundation Visiting Fellow on U.S.-China Relations.

Yu is considered an authority on China's economy. He's served on the monetary policy committee of the People's Bank of China. And he once sat on the United Nation's monetary and financial reform committee.

He's scheduled to spend four weeks as a fellow in Chicago, starting Tuesday.

The Chicago Council on Global Affairs says China is the Chicago area's largest international trading partner. It says more than 140 Chicago-area companies have subsidiaries in China and the Chicago region is home to more than 40 Chinese-owned companies.
