Tianjin Forum

The inaugural Tianjin Forum was launched in January 2015 in close partnership with Nankai University under the theme of “Urban Development and Governance.” The launching of the Forum was timely given that China was facing a strategic opportunity for urbanization. The participants engaged in intense debates on the effects of urbanization on China’s economy, social developments, and the environment. They also shared ideas and policy suggestions on how to improve the management of urban development in a globalized world.
