  • Trump policy mission impossible: ex-official

    “Trump is trying to focus on bilateral trade agreements to solve problems in the US, but he forgot one thing: If you seriously violate WTO rules in bilateral negotiations, the other country, no matter how small, wouldn’t agree,” Long Yongtu, former vice minister of China’s Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), said at roundtable hosted by the Beijing-based think tank Center for China & Globalization (CCG).

  • Chu Yin: Goa Summit to promote putting proposals into operation

    By watching the path that BRICS has followed, you may be surprised to find how fast it has established itself as a key player in the international arena and a facilitator for the cooperation among the five member states. The Goa Declaration, the fruit of the 8th BRICS Summit, is the freshest and most valid demonstration of that.

  • Number of mobile students out of, and into, China soars

    Of the five million international students studying higher education courses outside their own countries, one in four are from just one country: China. But now most Chinese studying abroad are returning home – the outbound-to-return ratio has risen to 82% over the past four years, compared to one in three returnees a decade earlier – and China is attracting hundreds of thousands of foreign students to its shores.

  • Is Trump serious about trade war with China?

    “This [appointment] is not a good sign, not a positive sign,” says Xie Tao, a senior research fellow at Center for China and Globalization (CCG), a think tank in Beijing, and Professor at the Foreign Studies University in Beijing. “There was a kind of euphoria over Donald Trump’s victory in China, and many Chinese were writing about how having him in the White House would be good for US-China relations. But in the last few weeks we’ve had a sudden turnaround, an about-face.”

  • Wang Huiyao: Think tanks as supplement to policymaking

    Chinese think tanks, be they State-sponsored or private, are inching forward in the global intellectual race. Nine of these made it to the world’s top 175 think-tank list prepared recently by the Lauder Institute of University of Pennsylvania. The university report says the United States has the largest number of think tanks (1,835) and China the second largest (435).
