Introduction to the Think Tank Lecture

Shanghai Academy is a research institute jointly set up by CASS and Shanghai Municipal People’s Government. Centering on the major theories and practical issues central to China’s reform and development, it aims to advance reform and development in China and innovation and progress in Shanghai, and develop into a high-end national think tank of great influence and high international reputation.

In 2017, Shanghai Academy launched the “Think Tank Lecture” campaign. As a high-end think tank brand and communication platform that Shanghai Academy works to build, the “Think Tank Lecture” is aimed to further implement the State’s requirements about construction of high-end think tanks, pool wisdom from a variety of sides, and promote the fast development of high-end think tanks. At the “Think Tank Lecture”, experts and scholars from high-end Chinese think tanks will be regularly invited as keynote speakers to spread the fruits of think tanks and to serve economic and social construction, with the contents of lectures covering a wide range of fields, including economics, politics, culture, science & technologies, society and the international community. Meanwhile, the “Think Tank Lecture” will also be opened to the public through live online broadcast and WeChat, so as to advance the spread of knowledge, sharing of think tanks, and public participation.
