2019 18th Issue: How did the rumor about China steal US$600 billion US intellectual property every year originate? - 2019-06-13
[Abstract]In recent years, a rumor has spread in the US, saying that the US intellectual property right has been stolen and caused huge economic losses.

2019 17th Issue: Stabilizing foreign investment to extend the important strategic opportunity period - 2019-05-30
[Abstract]Recently, the Trump administration has stepped up its efforts to contain China, adopting tariff barriers, security review, and long-arm jurisdiction to curb Chinese-funded enterprises. Meanwhile, it has launched a series of measures such as tax cuts and accession relaxation to bring capital back to the US. In particular, it added Huawei and its 70 subsidiaries to the entity list and interrupted the global supply chain, which has increased the concerns of international investors and posed a threat to China’s effective use of foreign capital. The Party Central Committee and the State Council have reviewed the situation and introduced a series of policies and measures to stabilize foreign investment. However, the negative expectation brought by the extreme pressure exerted by the United States has caused distress to many foreign companies. China should make early preparation for stabilizing foreign investment and preventing foreign capital withdrawal.

2019 14th Issue: Challenges Facing the Abenomics - 2019-05-21
[Abstract]The policy launched by the Abe government since 2013 has led to continuous economic expansion. However, the current Japanese economy has been unstable and is likely to experience slow economic growth. From April 22 to 26, 2019, a research team from China Center for International Economic Exchanges conducted a fact-finding trip to Japan, learning more about Japan’s economic development. Although the Japanese officials and experts believe that Japan’s economic expansion still continues, especially the investment in equipment, the Japanese economic growth has reached its peak and gradually start to shrink. The future growth prospect of the Japanese economy is not so optimistic. There are three challenges facing the Abenomics: the consumption austerity effect brought by the increased consumption tax, export decline resulted from trade friction and the aging population makes it very hard to improve labor productivity.
