The Horizon Research Group has engaged a continuous survey research on ‘The world in Chinese eyes’ for more than ten years. It focuses on the Chinese’s perception and understanding towards the United States of America, Russia, EU, Japan and many other countries, and people’s views on the critical issues which have great impacts on bilateral relations. The present survey aims to explore the Chinese view of America, and China’s current status and national image perceived by the Chinese public.
