The East is Read offers frequent briefings on China drawing mostly from Chinese mainland sources. It is hosted at the Center for China and Globalization (CCG), a leading non-government thinktank in Beijing that takes no position on issues raised in the newsletter.

CCG has been granted the official special consultative status by the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC) as a “non-governmental organization.” In the 2020 Global Go To Think Tank Index by the University of Pennsylvania Think Tank and Civil Society Program (TTCSP), CCG ranked among the top think tanks worldwide and the top 50 “best independent think tanks,” rivaling China’s state think tanks. CCG has been recognized as a “4A non-governmental organization” by Beijing Municipal Government Civil Affairs Department.
