Since its establishment, CCG has paid close attention to international relations and China's foreign affairs, tracking the development and changes of China's bilateral economic and trade relations with the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America, Australia, the Middle East and other countries and regions, and has been devoted to research on China-US-Europe cooperation, the Belt and Road Initiative, WTO reform, CPTPP and other multilateral topics, as well as providing recommendations for policymaking.
The annual flagship forums held by CCG for successive years have contributed to discussion on China-U.S. relations and China-EU cooperation, promoted international exchange, and given full play to the role of think tanks in track II diplomacy. CCG regularly conducts research and exchanges in multiple countries, and published a series of Chinese and English research reports on China-U.S. economy and trade relations.
The think tank hosts a series of roundtable seminars all year round, and invites think tank experts and scholars, political leaders, business elites and diplomats from the United States, Canada, Britain, Australia, Japan, Germany, Egypt and other countries to discuss and exchange views on international relations and multilateral cooperation.

Harvey Dzodin: US politicians should stop playing with fire on China
The White House just declared "war" on China — not a hot war, but something closer to a "Cold War 2.0". It's an act of desperation to divert the electorate's attention from the US administration's lack of leadership at home — and abroad — by targeting a country the White House has railed against since the 1980s. This doesn't bode well.July 24 , 2020

Fears of decoupling and a new cold war dominate today's rhetoric about the entanglement of the world's two economic titans.July 09 , 2020
