China`s think tanks, which have received little exposure in the past, have recently enjoyed significant attention from the media and policy makers, although they still have a way to go before they become influential on the global stage. At the end of June, the Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies, Renmin University held a think tank forum themed "The Silk Road Economic Belt Construction and Future" in Beijing.
The joint statement by Chinese President Xi Jinping and his French counterpart François Hollande on March 26 outlined both countries’ future comprehensive strategic partnership as a period of close and long-term development. In the statement, France showed its expectation that China should host its first G20 summit as soon as possible.
Actually facing this unknown, unexpected disease, China launched a very big battle to COVID-19 for five months and control basically COVID-19 spreading since the end of the February. But the problem is that in the past four months, there are no infections in most parts of China. But most of people who live in China still wear masks to prevent the transmission of COVID-19. On June 15th, Beijing, my living city, the capital of China, reported new domestically transmitted COVID-19 cases, there are about 10 daily new confirmed cases now, since the middle of this month. And this further makes us realize that the pandemic is turning into a protracted war. No one can relax. Even, as you may know, in China totally in the last five months only below 9000 cases.
