Responding to the increasing need of policy-oriented China know-how and the dispersed research resources, the FIIA has established “Finland−China Policy Network” under the auspices of the institute’s Asia Research Cluster. The network brings together senior-level China specialists in Finland conducting policy-relevant research in various universities and research institutions and China experts among policy makers and practitioners within the government for in-depth discussions on topical issues. Its purpose is to strengthen the preparedness for Finnish policy discussion related to China in a mutually beneficial manner. The network does not engage in publishing nor give interviews or statements to the media. Research and media activities are carried out by the members of the network in their individual capacity.
The network also organizes seminars and briefings on China’s global role and its repercussions for Finland. This launch event is the first in series of such events, and touches upon the questions “where is China going” and “where does it leave Finland”.
