On Sept. 12, CCG brought together a group of senior economic and trade experts and scholars to a seminar at its headquarters, led by CCG Honorary Chairman and former Minister of Commerce Mr. Chen Deming, to discuss the issues including the Sino-US trade frictions and the impact on global value chain, key issues and solution to the Sino-US economic relations, and the possibilities for China’s accession to CPTPP.
The perspectives and ideas shared the seminar will be taken as reference for the upcoming 6th Forum on the Globalization of Chinese Enterprises to be held on Nov. 2-3, and compiled into policy advisory reports on furthering the reform and opening-up, promoting China’s globalization and participation in global governance.
Beside his insights about the key issues discussed, Mr. Chen also acknowledged CCG’s growing international influence. He hoped that CCG scholars and experts can keep up with the good work and continue to provide valuable advice on the policymaking.
Dedicated to the research on promoting globalization, international relations, multilateral cooperation and global development, CCG held this seminar, as the Sino-US trade relations and multilateral trading system encounter setback now, to continue to support economic globalization and free trade and investment.
At the beginning of May, the Center for China and Globalization expert delegation, whilst in the US conducting “track II diplomacy” activities, visited several think tanks and research institutions to promote greater bilateral understanding. These included the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), Hudson Institute, Heritage Foundation, Wilson Center Kissinger Institute, American Enterprise Institute (AEI), Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Cato Institute and Pew Research Centre, among others.
On January 9, 2019, CCG held a seminar to release a new report, titled "CPTPP, New Opportunities for China in Future Free Trade" at its Beijing headquarters, and to discuss its implication to China and the world.
