Dr. Wang Huiyao, President of CCG, invited to Wilson Center

Wednesday,Oct 17, 2018



On September 25, CCG President Dr. Wang Huiyao visited the Wilson Center to engage with the US scholars on the bilateral relations.  The meeting was chaired by Robert Daly, Director of the Wilson Center's Kissinger Institute on China and the US.




Dr. Wang first expressed his appreciation for the invitation and praised what Wilson Center had done for the Sino-US good relations.

After then Dr. Wang Huiyao briefed the CCG’s new report China-US Trade Relations and Challenges: Past, Present, Future and Policy Options to the attendees from Wilson Center.



Dr. Wang said based on CCG’s ongoing in-depth research into China’s economic development and relations with the US, the report traces the evolution of Sino-US ties over the last four decades, highlighting the significant benefits that both sides have derived from increasing economic cooperation.

In the end, Dr. Wang introduced the ten recommendation for policymakers on how to resolve the dispute and facilitate deeper Sino-US cooperation from the report.




Scholars from Wilson Center then did some comments on the report and the current Sino-US  relations and thought it would be worthwhile to boost the bilateral exchanges and understanding and hoped CCG would play more contribution to the current bilateral ties.




Other participants from The Wilson Center included Meg Lundsager, Wilson Center public policy fellow and former US executive director on the International Monetary Fund Executive Board (2007-2014); Douglas G. Spelman, senior fellow and former deputy director of the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States; Benjamin Creutzfeldt, resident fellow; Danielle Neighbour, Schwarzman fellow at the Kissinger Institute and China Environment Forum; and Katie Stallard-Blanchette, resident fellow.




This series of activities set a new milestone for Track II diplomacy work by an independent Chinese think tank. Based on CCG’s ongoing research into China-US relations, this trip succeeded in engaging with several key institutions that influence the Trump administration and helped build foundations for long-term cooperation. Coming at a critical time for the China-US economic relationship, CCG’s outreach gained recognition from the Chinese and US policymaking community, media and academics.

To help resolve the current China-US trade dispute, CCG actively strives to leverage its position as an independent think tank to strengthen channels of international dialogue with government, industry, and academia, engaging with top think tanks, Congress, state governments, industry associations and key multinationals.

The CCG delegation included CCG President Wang Huiyao; CCG Vice President Miao Lu; Dr. Wenshan Jia, CCG Senior Non-resident Fellow and Professor of Journalism, Renmin University of China; Li Weifeng, CCG Executive Secretary-General; Li Yeqing, CCG Non-Resident Senior Fellow and President of the America-China Society; Tang Beijie, CCG Deputy Secretary-General; Deng Xiwei, CCG Non-Resident Senior Fellow and Professor at the University of International Business and Economics; Xiao Huilin, CCG Senior Research Fellow; CCG Deputy Secretary-General Xu Haiyu; and Ma Hongxia, CCG Shanghai Secretary-General.
