"In order to obtain accurate answers to the real strategic motivation behind China's international public goods policies, a necessary methodological innovation from normative studies to empirical studies should be taken" said Zhao Kejin, a senior researcher from China's Charhar Institute, during the Public Diplomacy Forum 2015: 4th International Conference on Public Diplomacy in China-Europe Relations.

"How to balance national interests and global interests has been one of the important strategic considerations in China's grand strategy," Zhao said, "China's comprehensive capabilities and institutional factors play a determinative role in understanding China's motivations behind a new public diplomacy for international public goods diplomacy. It will be China's new diplomacy in the long term future."

The two-day forum which opened from October 8 to 9 in Berlin was focused on "global public goods and public diplomacy", and co-organized by the China's Charhar Institute, the German Institute fuer Auslandsbeziehungen, and the Netherland's Clingendael Institute.

More than 40 experts from China, the Netherlands, Germany, the United States, the UK, France, Austria, India, Japan and South Korea attended in the event.
