The Charhar Institute, a national think tank, launched a new office in Shanghai on Thursday in the hope of gaining a stronger foothold in the city.

The launch ceremony was attended by several heavyweight academic figures, including Li Fenghua, deputy director of Shanghai Public Diplomacy Association, Dao Shuming, deputy director and secretary-general of Shanghai Public Diplomacy Association, and Liu Ming, deputy director of International Relations Institute of Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences.

The Charhar Institute has been selected as one of the top 10 think tanks focusing on the Belt and Road Initiative.

The institute was listed in the 108th position when ranked by research capabilities on foreign policies and international affairs by the University of Pennsylvania in its Director Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program in 2016.

During the two political sessions in March this year, Han Fangming, chairman of the Charhar Institute, was featured by several media outlets for his proposal to facilitate Sansha Yongxing Island in South China Sea in becoming a permanent registration center for offshore corporations.

Following the establishment of its office in Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong Province, The Chahar Institute's launch pad in Shanghai is attempting to provide farsighted intellectual products to the Chinese and international communities, promoting China's relationships with the rest of the world and improving the order of international society, said Han.

Zhao Qizheng, the former spokesman of Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, said in his congratulatory letter that the cooperation between the Charhar Institute and Shanghai think tanks like the city's Public Diplomacy Association, will undoubtedly open a new chapter for Shanghai's public diplomacy.
