Our International Work

People Forum on International Social Responsibility

Background

By the end of 2012, Chinese investors established nearly 22,000 enterprises overseas. The total assets of overseas companies are over $2.3 trillion. From 2000 to 2012, the number of Chinese tourists traveling abroad increased from 10 million to 83 million. How to ensure the safety of these trillions of dollars of overseas assets and the sustainable development of Chinese enterprises overseas? Among 13 billion Chinese citizens, how many of them do have proper international awareness? And how to bring up the national dignity of our citizens when they are busy flocking to every corner of the world? All the questions become significant issues confronted by Chinese government, enterprises, scholars, media, NGOs and the public. If not handled properly, these problems will affect the process of Chinese people’s integration into the world, the operation environment of Chinese enterprises overseas, and even Chinese international image and the enhancement of Chinese soft power.

To better understand Chinese future international social responsibility, and to explore a pattern for Chinese government, enterprises, NGOs, think-tanks and media to participate together in fulfilling the international social responsibility, and also to promote and cultivate the national consciousness and dignity of Chinese people, CFPA funded scholars from China and Myanmar to conduct the research subject ‘A Serial of Books on China’s International Social Responsibility Research’, and decided to hold the ‘People Forum on China’s International Social.
