Meifen Chu Guangyuan Zhou Wenfeng Wu (2021), Data Envelopment Analysis on Relative Efficiency Assessment and Improvement: Evidence from Chinese Bank Branches, 34th EBES CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS VOLUME - II, p.845-870, January 6-8. 2021, 2021.01, The objective of this research is four-fold. First, we focus on micro-level analysis of 18 bank branches of one large Chinese commercial bank using the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). Second, we decompose the effectiveness into efficiency and productivity to estimate the bank branches’ relative efficiency and productivity. This has rarely been conducted by previous researchers. Third, we employ a novel approach to further detect the efficiency of the bank branches, that is, to introduce operating environment factors with three dimensions (business conditions, competitiveness, and future development) to rank the bank branches’ efficiency. Finally, according to the assessment results, we suggest practical measures to improve the efficiency of inefficient branches in the areas of expense, revenue, and management. Our suggestions are beneficial to any commercial bank’s policy making..
2. Meifen Chu(2020), WAVELET ANALYSIS OF THE EURO AND ITS CO-MOVEMENT WITH FOUR EXCHANGE RATES, EURASIAN JOURNAL OF SOCIAL SCIENCES, DOI: 10.15604/ejss.2020.08.03.004, 8(3), 2020,, 123-133, 2020.10, The objective of this study is to examine the characteristics of the Euro exchange rate and its co- movement with four main currencies (the AUD, POUND, YEN, and RMB). After the Euro was adopted as an official currency in EU area, it grew rapidly and became the second most-traded currency in the world. The increasing importance of the Euro drew much attention from researchers and policymakers. This paper employs the wavelet analysis, which has become popular and recently is applied in various fields, such as medical science, radio science and social science. First, this paper observes five currency exchange series: the EURO, AUD, POUND, YEN and RMB. Next, using wavelet analysis, it examines the characteristics of each series. Then, a wavelet coherence analysis is used to examine the interdependence between the EURO and the other four currencies. The results indicate that the Euro displays a greater interdependence with the AUD and POUND, while it has lesser correlations with the YEN and RMB. This implies the Euro co-moves with the American and European exchange markets while it is less related with the Asian counterpart. It is interesting to note that the Yen led the Euro during the global financial crisis. Further, the Euro has interdependence with the four exchange rates at shorter periodicities during the crisis periods and is correlated with the four at long periodicities in the long run..
