The Imperial Springs International Forum (ISIF) held in Guangzhou was a high-level conference that brought together top Chinese and international leaders and practitioners to engage in conversation and advance constructive and informed solutions to today’s critical global security and economic challenges. Through a plenary session, three panel discussions, and two special lunch discussions, the conference explored how China and the world can work together to realize the common opportunities and overcome the possible policy issues that result from China’s rise as a global actor and an Asia-Pacific power.

ISIF was organized by the Kingold Group and the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries. The Carnegie–Tsinghua Center for Global Policy served as a knowledge partner and arranged the conference’s panel discussions.
