  • South China Morning Post | China’s “golden ticket” to international leadership in biotech

    “If a guy becomes a Thousand Talent, there are cases where that guy is getting multiple local benefits – local incentives, local grants,” said Director of the Centre for China & Globalisation (CCG), Wang Huiyao, in his correspondence with the South China Morning Post.

  • Wang Huiyao: Summit paves way for new globalization

    That’s the new globalization that pioneers global governance and provides a new platform and approach for the growth of the world economy. It will renovate the old pattern, which is dominated by developed countries and only benefits the people there.

  • Wang Huiyao: Ten ways to enhance Sino-US relations

    The relationship between China and the US in the economy and trade as well as people-to-people exchanges is closer than ever, and neither side could stand the cost of cutting these ties. Both countries should recognize that under the Trump administration, they still need to continue with a working relationship that benefits not only themselves, but also the rest of the world.

  • China Lagging on International Talent Competitiveness

    The Blue Book of Regional Talent, published Monday by independent Beijing-based think tank the Center for China and Globalization (CCG), alongside the Institute of Development Studies at Southwestern University of Finance and Economics in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, establishes a six-part evaluation index that ranks China’s cities and regions for foreigner-friendliness.

  • 【BJ Review】Wang Huiyao: Firm in Globalization

    Under the banner of “America First,” U.S. President Donald Trump has launched a trade war against his country’s main trading partners, with China the major target.
