CCG continues to conduct two-way research on corporate globalization, the "go global" movement and inwards investment. Our research includes topics including U.S.-China trade, international trade, inbound investment, outbound investment and digital trade in an international context.
CCG is constantly looking for more ways to promote global free trade and has taken the lead in promoting China's participation in the CPTPP and publishing a series of relevant research reports. In addition, CCG's research team compiles and publishes the only Chinese blue book report on the globalization of Chinese enterprises: Chinese Enterprises Globalization, published by China Academy of Social Sciences Press.
CCG has also published a series of books on the globalization of enterprises in both English and Chinese, including Report on Development of Overseas Chinese Entrepreneurs, Rising Tide: 40 Years of Chinese Enterprises Going Global, China Goes Global and The Globalization of Chinese Enterprises. CCG also holds the China Outbound-inbound Forum, the most influential forum in China focusing on the development and globalization of enterprises.
CCG has set up several sub-forums on international issues related to international trade and investment, gathering leaders of multinational enterprises, ambassadors to China, former government officials, heads of international organizations and chambers of commerce, experts from top international think tanks and other influential people from home and abroad. In-depth discussion with renowned scholars has helped to develop the event into a high-end international forum for promoting the globalization of enterprises.
Miao Lu: Beyond Doha, Building trust and connectivity
2018 was a year of ups and downs in the international arena. However, after my recent trip to the Middle East to participate in the 18th Doha Forum, I welcome the new year with renewed optimism. Sharing ideas with people from around the world brought home the power of dialogue and deeper connectivity to overcome our differences.January 07 , 2019

Jorge Heine: A ‘make or break’ G20 summit in Buenos Aires
Much, if not most, of the media attention at the 13th G20 summit in Buenos Aires this weekend will not be on the meeting itself, but rather on a dinner held on the sidelines of it, that is, the one between US President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping. Admittedly, much is at stake in the latter, and not just on matters of trade and global economic governance. As the world economy tatters, expectations are that some kind of truce in the trade war between the planet’s two largest economies will be declared.December 06 , 2018
Zamir Ahmed Awan: Currency swap deals good for developing countries
The global trade is dependent on US dollar and whenever the US wants to punish any country, it easily imposes sanctions and freezes its accounts. An overall vulnerability has long been felt, but no country was able to challenge the dollar as an internationally acceptable currency for global trade.November 27 , 2018
Wang Huiyao: WTO reform deemed both imperative and beneficial
Over the past 20 years, the WTO has played a critical role in the economic development of nations all over the world, and has been the primary impetus for economic globalization. However, for more than a decade now, the development of the WTO has stagnated due to irreconcilable differences between developed and developing countries. This can be seen in the demise of the Doha Round of talks. With WTO talks deadlocked, the current US administration has adopted an increasingly negative attitude toward the institution, choosing to abandon multilateralism and instead relying on bilateral talks to resolve trade issues. Furthermore, US President Donald Trump has repeatedly threatened to pull the US out of the WTO. These developments constitute an unprecedented challenge to the multilateral trading system that has done so much to reduce trade barriers and promote the spirit of free trade since World War II.October 14 , 2018
