Our strong affiliations with companies and academic institutions in China help bring local as well as international perspectives to our research and education. Senior executives from leading companies such as China Vanke, Huawei, and New Hope Liuhe sit on our advisory council to provide strategic guidance and support for the centre’s development. Moreover, the centre has access to Mapletree's International Education Zone Project in Foshan and the NUS Suzhou Research Institute, extending its reach to southern and eastern China.

The CBC also organises activities such as flagship business forums, research symposia and thematic workshops to promote an understanding of China’s business landscape and encourage dialogue between scholars and practitioners on the future direction of China-related businesses.
