China Standards and Innovation Policy Initiative Working Papers

As of July 2011, four working papers have been published as part of a joint initiative between NBR and the East-West Center, "China Standards and Innovation Policy in the Global Knowledge Economy: Core Issues for China and the United States." Under the direction of Project Principal Investigator Dr. Dieter Ernst (East-West Center), this multi-year initiative examines the international dimensions of China’s standards and innovation policies, as well as the challenge of reconciling national policies with international standards. Available from the East-West Center, these papers are:

To inform and strengthen the findings of these papers, the initiative convened an invitation-only workshop that brought together more than fifty high-level experts from industry, academe, and policymaking for a discussion of China’s industrial policies and the implications for global stakeholders in 2009. The project has also resulted in a series of top-quality publications and dozens of briefings for government and industry leaders in both the United States and China.
