The China Media Centre (CMC) organised a briefing on UK policy development and communication for a group of senior Chinese political editors in May 2015.

The editors – who included Zhu Tiezhi, the Deputy Editor-in-Chief of Qiushi, the journal of the Central Committee of the Communist Party – visited the UK to find out more about policy in English-speaking countries and to debate economic, social and constitutional ideas. They were also here to learn how they could promote discussion and contributions to policy-making in China.

They visited think-tanks such as the Centre for Policy Studies (CPS) and the Institute of Economic Affairs, and heard lectures from leading political scientists specialising in policy generation and communication.
