China National Image Global Survey

Launched in 2011, the China National Image Global Survey was the first large-scale independent research platform to continuously release regular survey reports on China’s national image. It regularly conducts surveys into views on China in more than 20 countries and has accumulated a large amount of firsthand data, making it an important information source both domestically and overseas for studying China’s image.

The China National Image Global Survey platform was jointly developed by the Academy of Contemporary China and World Studies and global research agency Kantar Millward Brown. It aims to understand perceptions of China within the international community in a scientific, objective, systematic and holistic manner, and timely review feedback from overseas on China’s international communications activities carried out to promote the country’s national image. In that way, it can provide targeted, comparative and practical advice to bolster China’s international communications campaigns.

Since 2014, the platform has conducted annual research in Asia-Pacific, 12 countries along the route of the Belt and Road, Central and Eastern Europe, ASEAN countries, and Africa and released relevant survey reports.
