Global governance, international organizations, regional cooperation and the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) are key subjects of CCG's globalization research. As China's first think tank named and dedicated to globalization, CCG founded the China and Globalization Forum and contributes to international discussions related to globalization. It has organized seminars under themes such as WTO reform, multilateral governance, and the BRI. CCG was the first body to hold a BRI-themed event at the Munich Security Conference, a world-leading conference in the field of international security and governance.
Based on years of research in the field of globalization, CCG has published numerous research reports and books, including Win-Win International Cooperation and Path to Achievement of the Belt and Road, Globalization and Anti-Globalization and What’s Next for Globalization? Great Changes and China’s Proposed Approaches. The Handbook on China and Globalization published by Edward Elgar Publishing is one of the few books published in English by a Chinese think tank with an authoritative international academic publisher. Two of the CCG's initiatives were selected for inclusion in the first Paris Peace Forum, pioneering a new model for Chinese think tanks to fully participate in global governance and international cooperation. In addition, CCG has long-term cooperation with the WTO, UN, OECD, World Bank, IMF and many other international organizations, international think tanks and related institutions.
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.

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
