The China Center for International Economic Exchanges is a think tank based in Beijing, China. Founded in 2009, its self-described mission is "promoting international economic research and exchanges and providing consulting service." The establishment of CCIEE has been characterized as a demonstration of what some scholars had previously described as an emerging effort by Chinese policy leaders to create mechanisms to "facilitate broad domestic and international policy discussions" combining the expertise of political officials, business leaders, and academics returning from overseas study.
The CCIEE has been described as "China's top think tank." Though funded by both government and private sources, the CCIEE has been noted for its tight connections to the government of the People's Republic of China. Underscoring this relationship, its offices are located a few hundred meters from Zhongnanhai.
