The Platform to Understand the New Dynamics of Asia

The rise of China changes the dynamics of Asia. The world needs to understand China as much as China needs to recognize the rules of engagement with the world.

Knowing CNIA

Established in 2xxx by former Malaysian Transport Minister Tan Sri Ong Tee Keat and Mr Koh King Kee, Director of the Belt and Road Desk at Baker Tilly MH Advisory Malaysia, CNIA is a Kuala Lumpur based independent think tank focused on studies of the new dynamics brought about by the rise of China and other Asian powers, in particular ASEAN and South Asian countries.

Partnering with leading academics and researchers at the Institute of China Studies at University of Malaya, the National Academy of Development and Strategy at Renmin University of China (RUC) and the Center for One Belt One Road at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), CNIA is uniquely qualified to analyze and comment on China’s rise within Asia and to promote connectivity with and within Asia as a precondition for inclusive growth, regional integration and economic opportunity.

To serve as a connector and bridge to promote better understanding within Asia, as well as between the New Asia and the World.

To create platforms for local, regional and global encounters and exchange that help oversome misunderstanding and misinterpretation of Asia’s peaceful rise in a more interconnected world.
