The China Association for the Club of Rome (China CoR) held its monthly meeting on November 16 from 7pm to 8pm Beijing time. Zhou Jinfeng, Fred Dubee and Chandran Nair attended the meeting, which was organized by the chair, Jorgen Randers.
This meeting focused on the distribution of the first academic report Understanding China Will Make a World of a Difference issued by China CoR. The Board of the China CoR decided to distribute the report to the members of the China CoR for review and comment after the meeting.
The report is entitled Understanding China Will Make a World of a Difference. It was written during the last half of 2021, with the goal of contributing to improved global communication and understanding.
The mission of the China CoR, amongst other things, is to promote international understanding and cooperation between China and the rest of the world. In its most distilled form, the mission is to reduce geopolitical tensions occurring from the rise of China.
This report is an attempt to fill a void and contribute to reducing said tensions in the process. The void is the need for the rest of the world to better understand the China of today.
