China Global Impact (CGI) is an initiative determined to gather information, data, and stories of how Chinese enterprises and communities overseas impact local sustainable development. CGI hopes to connect China’s Belt and Road Initiative with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
You are welcome to submit articles explaining who you are, how Chinese enterprises and communities are impacting the local communities in a specific region. Both positive and negative observations are welcome. Insightful articles would be published, and you would become one of our Global China Impact Watchers.
