The 2015 China-US Philanthropy Forum, co-hosted by the Center for China & Globalization and Columbia University School of Social Work, was held in New York City on February 24, 2015.
Dr.Wang Huiyao, director of the Center for China & Globalization, spoke to the press during the meeting and stated that exchanges and communications between China and the United States in the field of philanthropy are conducive to the development of China’s public welfare sector. He spoke highly of what Americans have accomplished in philanthropic work, saying that China has a lot to learn from the US in terms of building a comprehensive legal and public supervision system.
The Seminar is the second event hosted in the US by the Center for China & Globalization after a similar meeting took place at the Harvard Kennedy School. The New York seminar invited renowned philanthropists and experts in the field of philanthropy from across the US to discuss issues such as American philanthropic culture, public participation, transparency of foundations, and NGO work. The sponsors of the event hope that the seminars will be a step towards China building world-class think tanks and will enhance academic and non-governmental exchanges between China and the US.
