As China’s sustained economic growth translates into greater assertiveness of its role in the world, this CIGI research theme focuses on China’s agenda in shaping the global economy. Research ranges from China’s own agenda for the G20, the IMF, and monetary and financial matters, to its international trade and investment policies, including those aimed at the internationalization of the renminbi (RMB). The theme engages scholars with a significant ability to connect with China’s leadership and policymakers to ensure that the resulting research embeds a relevant Chinese perspective.
