The General Report summarizes the status, characteristics, change and trend of overseas Chinese entrepreneurs development, focusing on the relationship between Chinese Entrepreneurs and China’s economy, and the role and opportunity of overseas Chinese Entrepreneurs in the the Belt and Road Initiative, and puts forward some suggestions on promoting the overseas Chinese Entrepreneurs in the new period.
In the Evaluation Reports, we developed a set of indicators and designed an evaluation system to rank “the world’s most influential top 10 Chinese entreprises” and “the world’s most influential top 10 Chinese entrepreneurs” based on quantitative analysis and qualitative analysis, combined with expert opinions, to introduce influential Chinese enterprises and Chinese entrepreneurs as a reference for the future study of Chinese entrepreneurs.
The Special Issue Reports analyzes Chinese entrepreneurs from different regions and from different groups, such as the Chinese entrepreneurs in Europe, Indonesia, Russia, the Silicon Valley, and overseas Chinese entrepreneurs from Wenzhou and Guangdong. In addition, we have also studied the unique theme of the overseas Chinese family enterprises.
