The Research Center for Youth Cultural Exchange was recently founded at UIBE with the dual aim of cultivating international youth leadership as well as advancing scholarship relating to Chinese youth involvement and shared responsibility in global governance and China’s economic reforms and social opening.


    Following recent Chinese government initiatives to strengthen the international programs of its universities, the Center aims to serve as a platform for scholarly exchange by hosting an annual conference in Beijing, pairing students at UIBE with visiting international faculty to conduct research, and funding student and faculty research about recent trends in China’s unique path of economic development.


    UIBE is uniquely positioned to house such an endeavor. UIBE was founded in 1951 as a part of Project 211, a program developed to help top Chinese universities become leading international universities. UIBE plays a vital role in training and research on Chinese economic development. UIBE is also unique among top Chinese universities in its international orientation. Discussion, debate, and research at UIBE have always been animated by the idea that mutual prosperity and international economic cooperation require a steady foundation of mutual understanding.
