CDB Forum – China’s Overseas NGO Law Two Years On

As China’s economic capacity and needs change, and especially after the implementation of the Overseas NGO Law, the environment for overseas NGOs in China has dramatically changed at all levels. Two years after the implementation of the new law, China Development Brief hopes to utilize our “CDB Forum” as a platform to facilitate discussion on the experiences and challenges overseas NGOs may have when operating under the changed circumstances, and on how they should deal with the future. The forum will also include discussions on important topics like how to file for temporary activities, and overseas NGOs helping Chinese NGOs to work abroad.

Purpose of the forum: We hope to facilitate the effective operations of overseas NGOs under the current circumstances, including in areas like strategic positioning, partnership maintenance and institutional operations.

The forum will take place on the 6th and 7th of November 2018 in Beijing (the specific location will be notified two weeks prior to the forum). Well-known scholars and chief representatives and senior management of renowned organizations in related fields will share their perspectives through featured speeches, roundtable discussions, Q & A sessions and more.
