Professor Ngo Van Long was born in Vietnam in 1948. In 1967, he came to Australia to pursue his higher education. He started his academic career at the Australian National University, where he obtained his Ph.D. degree. In 1989, he joined McGill University as a Full Professor and became a James McGill Professor in 2003. Besides, he was also invited to teach and research at leading universities around the world, including Harvard University (the U.S.); University of Mannheim, Kiel University , University of Munich (Germany); Tilburg University (The Netherlands), Vienna Institute for Advanced Studies (Austria); University of Toulouse, Aix-Marseille University, University of Montpellier (France); University of Adelaide, University of Sydney, University of Tasmania, University of New South Wales, Australian National University (as a Fred Gruen Fellow), Monash University (Australia); University of Otago (New Zealand); National University of Singapore (Singapore); Academia Sinica (Taiwan); Kobe University, and Hitotsubashi University (Japan).

Professor Long was a prolific and influential general equilibrium economic theorist of the Samuelsonian tradition. He also contributed to other areas of economics, including but not limited to natural resources and environmental economics; international trade; theory of dynamic games and dynamic optimisation; and applied microeconomic theory, particularly industrial organisation theory and public economics.

His contribution to academia is tremendous. He published at least eight books (not counting one under preparation at the time of his passing), 65 book chapters, and close to 200 journal articles, with an h-index of 52. His articles appeared in the profession’s leading journals such as Econometrica, Quarterly Journal of Economics, Review of Economic Studies, Canadian Journal of Economics, Economic Journal, Economic Record, Economic Theory, European Economic Review, Games and Economic Behaviour, International Economic Review, International Journal of Industrial Organisation, Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, Journal of Economic Theory, Journal of International Economics, Journal of Public Economics, Journal of Public Economic Theory and RAND Journal of Economics.

At various times, he served as the co-editor of the Canadian Journal of Economics and Resource and Energy Economics; as associate editor of the Journal of International Economics, the International Game Theory Review, the Journal of Public Economic Theory, and the Review of International Economics; as a member of the editorial board of the European Journal of Political Economy, the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, and Mathematical Social Sciences; and as a member of the advisory board of Dynamic Games and Applications. He was also a Fellow at CESifo, CIRANO, and CIREQ.

He passed away in Montreal on 15 January 2022. His untimely passing has represented a severe loss to the discipline of economics worldwide.
