Chinese Economy Research Programme

Initiated in 1999, the Chinese Economy Research Programme (CERP) focuses on the ongoing economic development and modernization in China, its international trade and Sino-Indian economic relations. The CERP helps researchers, decision makers and practitioners to better understand the economic challenges, transitions and trajectories of Chinese economy. ICS is involved in a number of independent and credible researches on China’s economic landscape, its development experiences within China as well as at the sub-regional, regional and global level.

By providing thorough and balanced policy inputs, CERP serves to bridge the gap between leaders and researchers from both countries and to facilitate better communication on economic issues between the two countries. Moreover, the program also aims to build capacity among Indian researchers to connect them with the Institute’s network of like-minded experts from both countries. While we continue to laboriously build and stock this research vertical in the long-term, we have also been having seminars as well as publications in the short-term. There were several publications and seminars held on the theme through the year.

With the aim of reinvigorating the programme with growing interest in the rise of Chinese economy, we are in the process of getting on board economists and policymakers, with a China focus, and undertake collaborative research projects.
