The China Center for Economics and Business in Beijing, as well as its councils of peer executives in Europe and the United States, provides members with advance intelligence on public policy, regulations, and economic developments in China that are likely to affect members’ businesses. Because the China Center is “on the ground” in China, its research is always relevant and offers executives immediate access to a well-established and reliable business source for information that can help them make sound planning decisions.
