The Paulson Institute joined the Office of the Central Leading Group for Financial and Economic Affairs to witness the signing of the first letters of intent for projects to receive funding from the Building Energy Efficiency and Green Development Fund. The Institute has served as a non-commercial advisor to the fund, given its commitment to promoting low-carbon development.

A new Think Tank investment case study explores Chinese startup WuXi PharmaTech's acquisition of the U.S. pharmaceutical firm AppTec in 2008. Capitalizing on the boom in research outsourcing to Asian countries, WuXi sought to leverage the AppTec acquisition to break into the U.S. market. The company's story illustrates the emerging trend of high-skilled labor outsourcing from the U.S.

Joined

The Institute participated in the 2nd annual U.S.-China Climate-Smart/Low-Carbon Cities Summit in Beijing, co-organized by the two countries to promote the implementation of the climate agreement signed by President Obama and President Xi in 2014, as well as the 2015 Paris climate deal. At the event, Beijing Managing Director Kevin Mo spoke about the need for green finance to drive low-carbon buildings in China.

Trained

The Institute hosted a delegation of Chinese officials for a two-week trip to the United States to learn about the U.S. national parks system. The training is part of a cooperation between the Institute and the Chinese government aimed at helping China develop a comprehensive system of national parks. The delegation attended lectures and visited several parks in addition to San Francisco's Golden Gate.

Climate and Sustainable Urbanization

The Institute and the PBOC Green Finance Committee published a report on financing mechanisms for green buildings. Among its recommendations: establish a guarantee mechanism for green buildings, based on a third-party rating system; build a credit-enhancement mechanism to attract private capital and incentives; continue subsidies from the government. The report, written by Beijing Managing Director Kevin Mo, is part of a series of three papers supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies, concluding that financing China's next stage of urban development will require $1 trillion over the next five years.


Cross-Border Investment

A new Think Tank investment case study details how Tranlin, a paper manufacturer based in China's Shandong province, invested $2 billion to build an advanced manufacturing facility in Virginia. Driven by an interest in competing in the global market, Tranlin’s investment marks the largest greenfield investment in the U.S. to date from a private Chinese firm. More significantly, in this instance the Chinese investor played the role of the technology exporter, rather than the more common role of technology acquirer. When complete and operating at full capacity by 2020, Tranlin expects the plant to generate more than 2,000 local jobs.


Conservation

Partnering with the State Forestry Administration, the Lao Niu Foundation, and World Wide Fund Hong Kong, the Institute held a training course for Chinese wetland managers in Hong Kong’s Mai Po Nature Reserve, known for its successful conservation approach. The Institute’s wetlands initiative is introducing best practices in protection of the China's endangered coastal wetlands, which provide important ecosystems services to millions of people. The training will continue with two more courses in Mai Po in September and October.


Contemporary China Speakers Series

China can overcome current economic headwinds if it steadily implements an economic reform agenda, said Gavekal Dragonomics analyst Arthur Kroeber in a recent Paulson Institute talk on the future of China's economy. But Kroeber commented that China's future economic policy seems uncertain these days. While the government might proceed with reforms, he said—pursuing a "Singapore on steroids" model—political interests could also block market liberalization, causing stagnation.

发表

保尔森基金会发布最新投资案例研究,探讨2008年中国初创药企药明康德收购美国医药研发企业艾普科技实验室。药明康德抓住了大量科研工作正外包给亚洲国家这一契机,希望凭借这宗收购进入美国市场。这个案例揭示了美国将大量高技术含量工作外包给其他国家的新兴趋势。

活动

保尔森基金会参加第二届中美气候智慧型/低碳城市峰会。该峰会由中美两国共同举办,旨在推动实施由中美两国2014年共同签署的中美气候变化联合声明,以及2015年巴黎气候变化大会达成的《巴黎协定》。保尔森基金会北京代表处执行主任莫争春博士在会上发言,探讨通过绿色金融推动中国低碳城市发展的重要性。

培训

保尔森基金会最近在美国接待了由中国政府官员组成的代表团。他们在美国展开了为期两周的学习之旅,了解美国国家公园体系以及公园管理的理论和最佳实践。该培训项目是保尔森基金会与中国政府开展合作的部分内容,旨在帮助中国建立一套全面的国家公园体制。代表团在培训期间每天都参加专题讲座。

气候与可持续城镇化

保尔森基金会与中国人民银行绿色金融委员会共同发布一份绿色建筑融资机制的报告。报告指出,十三五期间,中国城市建设将需要投入一万亿美元。报告建议:结合第三方评价机构体系,建立绿色建筑担保机制;构建绿色建筑增信机制,以吸引社会资本投资,并促使中央财政推出更多奖励补贴工具;政府继续给予财政补贴。该报告由保尔森基金会北京代表处执行主任莫争春博士撰写,是《绿色金融与低碳城市投融资》系列报告中的一篇。该系列报告由彭博慈善基金会提供支持。


跨境投资

保尔森基金会智库发布最新投资案例研究,分析山东造纸企业泉林公司的投资案例。它在美国弗吉尼亚州投资两百万美元,建设海外先进生产基地。泉林有意开拓全球市场,这笔投资也是迄今为止中国民企在美国的最大绿地投资项目。更重要的是,在此项目中,中国投资方并非寻求技术引进,而是扮演了技术出口方的角色 。2020年泉林完成建设并全面投产时,预计能给当地创造超过2000个就业岗位。


生态保护

国家林业局、保尔森基金会、老牛基金会和世界自然基金会香港分会在香港米埔自然保护区为中国湿地管理人员举办了湿地管理培训课程。米埔保护区以其成功的湿地保护方法而闻名。保尔森基金会的湿地保护项目致力于将最佳实践引入中国濒危沿海湿地的保护,湿地为生活在中国沿海地区的数百万居民提供了重要的生态系统服务功能。今年九月份和十月份,这项培训还将在米埔保护区举办两次。


当代中国演讲人系列

保尔森基金会举办当代中国演讲人系列活动,佳富龙洲(Gavekal Dragonomics)分析师葛艺豪(Arthur Kroeber)在谈话中表示,如果中国稳健推进经济改革进程,就能够克服当前的经济困难。但是葛艺豪也指出,在目前看来,中国未来的经济政策似乎仍具有不确定性。尽管政府会继续改革,追求“新加坡模式”,但是政治利益可能会阻碍市场自由化进程,致使发展停滞。
