On the afternoon of July 19, the Policy Research Office of the People's Government of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and the Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies at Renmin University of China (RDCY) held a signing ceremony for major cooperation projects in Beijing. Tian Dezhi, director of the Policy Research Office, and Wang Wen, Executive Dean of the RDCY, signed a cooperation agreement on behalf of both parties.
Director Tian Dezhi said in his speech that since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, Inner Mongolia's construction on economics, politics, culture, society, ecology, civilization and party building have all achieved great results. In order to further promote Inner Mongolia's reform, opening up, and economic development, and accelerate the construction of an important pivot for China's opening to the north, the Research Office of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region People's Government and RDCY, the new-type Chinese think tank, sign the agreement, hoping that the two sides can seek common cooperation in the future to play the advantages of Inner Mongolia, and accelerate the pace of "going out" for Inner Mongolia.
Professor Wang Wen first appreciated the Government of Inner Mongolia for its trust. He said, "Since the establishment of the RDCY five years ago, it has been widely recognized by the central and local governments as well as the public, which is based on the development opportunities given by the times to think tank construction." He also mentioned that Inner Mongolia is located in the northern part of China and had important strategic role. Relying on the academic resources of Renmin University and the international think tank cooperation network of the RDCY, cooperation between the two sides can better assist Inner Mongolia to deeply integrate into the construction of the “Belt and Road” and contribute to playing an important role of Inner Mongolia in the Sino-Mongolian-Russian economic corridor.
