Happy New Year


Dear Friends of CCG,

As we move towards the end of a year unlike any other, all of us at the Center for China and Globalization (CCG) here in Beijing would like to wish you a safe, healthy, and prosperous new year for 2021.

2020 was a year of unprecedented change and challenges for everyone across the globe. The outbreak of COVID-19 disrupted our daily lives and impeded global connectivity. In the face of such challenges, we would like to take this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude for your continuing support and highlight some of our achievements over this past year, as CCG sought to boost international dialogue through online activities and develop new multilateral capacities to address the pandemic.

International Events

In 2020, amidst challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, CCG held more than 60 webinars both in Chinese and English, covering a wide range of topics, including China-US non-governmental anti-pandemic cooperation, global governance and cooperation in public health, international education, multilateral cooperation, global talent mobility, and food security. These events brought together hundreds of leading experts, top think-tankers, scholars, senior representatives from chambers of commerce, and policymakers from institutions in different countries.

According to the figures shown on CCG‘s multimedia platforms, there are almost ten million audiencs at home and abroad watching the webinars.

CCG also continued to develop our flagship events. Nine roundtable seminars focusing on key topics were held during the Sixth China and Globalization Forum, a two-day event hosted from November 11-12. Participants included former senior policymakers, ambassadors to China, heads of international organizations, representatives of chambers of commerce, leaders from business, academia, and research, and noted scholars and entrepreneurs from China and abroad. We also hosted the Fifth China Global Think Tank Innovation Forum in November. In September, we held the Seventh China Inbound-Outbound Forum and launched an initiative to establish a network for international chambers of commerce at the forum.

In December, CCG held the Ambassadors Roundtable on "China and the World in the Period of China’s 14th Five Year Plan." This event brought together diplomats from around 60 countries to discuss new opportunities for international cooperation under the 14th Five-Year Plan (FYP), and ways to strengthen cooperation between China and the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). Furthermore, CCG launched the Global Young Leaders Dialogue (GYLD) Program in December, which is designed to nurture the development of opinion leaders from diverse regions, sectors, disciplines, cultural and professional backgrounds.

In 2020, CCG representatives participated and contributed to numerous high-level international forums, such as the 56th Munich Security Conference (MSC). As MSC’s only non-govermental Chinese partner, CCG co-hosted a dinner on the theme of “US-China Cold War? Myth and Reality” with the MSC. John Kerry, former US secretary of State, delivered special addresses ; CCG and Center of Excellence for Operations in Confined and Shallow Waters (COE CSW) of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) also co-organized a side event under the theme of “Bridging troubled waters - alleviating conflict potential in the South China Sea” .

More Information

The internationalization of Chinese enterprises is one of the most notable aspects of economic globalization in the 21st century. Despite the 2008 financial crisis and weak global outbound investment, under the “go global“ initiative, Chinese outbound investment has gone from strength to strength, while also diversifying in terms of investment modalities, destinations, and industries. However, growing anti-globalization sentiment in some countries has also created new challenges for Chinese firms expanding internationally.

Drawing on nearly 3000 data samples, using both quantitative and qualitative research methods, this book presents unique insights into the features and patterns of Chinese enterprises’ globalization. The analysis provides a useful reference for enterprises that have already gone global and those that plan to. In particular, this book investigates challenges confronted by Chinese companies when doing business in foreign countries. It summarizes research covering three angles, namely: the current situation, causation analysis and corresponding solutions, and recommendations for firms, government agencies and other institutions.

This book provides a comprehensive overview to help readers to grasp the broad picture of the international expansion of Chinese enterprises. It has important reference value for enterprises to help devise foreign investment strategy, seize opportunities, and navigate challenges in the course of globalization.

More Information

This book offers the most comprehensive, up-to-date assessment of China’s domestic and international migration. Restructuring economic development requires large numbers of educated and skilled talents, but this effort comes at a time when the size of China’s domestic workforce is shrinking. In response, both national and regional governments in China have been keen to encourage overseas Chinese talents and professionals to return to the country. Meanwhile, the Chinese government has initiated a number of policies to attract international highly-skilled talents and enhance the country’s competitiveness, and some Chinese policies have started attracting foreign talents, who are coming to the country to work, and even to stay. Since Chinese policies, mechanisms, and administration efforts to attract and retain skilled domestic or overseas talents are helping to reshape China’s economy and are significantly affecting the cooperation on migration and talent mobility, these aspects, in addition to being of scholarly and research interest, hold considerable commercial potential.
