our company

China Policy is a globally recognised research and strategic advisory, headquartered in Beijing.

Building strategic thinking on policy process and risk, we work with corporate clients, governments, multilateral agencies, universities and non-profits.

Our strength lies in our macro approach, the breadth of our Chinese-language evidence base, and our principals’ decades of first-hand China experience. We see emerging patterns, identify the interests driving them, extrapolate trends and deliver answers.
