Wang Jun is from the so called “Red Families” in China.  A small group of the Chinese elite, controlling the power of China, coming from the group from Mao Zedong. Members of these so called “Red Families” are holding key positions in China, and whose influence extends well beyond politics. Wang Jun full fills many different positions. One of the positions is Executive Director of CISM, the official “Think Tank” of the Chinese Government which “advices” the President directly.  ECF and CEBDS have a long-lasting personal relationship with Wang Jun.

In China there are a several locations that play an important role in Chinese politics, representing the power and strength of China.

The most important and well known location is the Great Hall of the People at Tienanmen square  in Beijing, the Chinese parliament that can seat 10.000 people in the grand Hall. The other less well known building is the Diaoyutai in Beijing, that  houses the main government agencies and receives Head of States when they visit China during their State visit. The Diaoyutai is a large and very secured area with a lake completely surrounded by a wall and guarded by the Army.  The Europe China Foundation has direct access to the Great Hall of the People and the Diaoyutai. We have many footsteps in both buildings and have received many people in the Diaoyutai. In 2008, we even organised a concert in the Great Hall of the People, with 10.000 people. This concert was broadcast ed on national television by CCTV.
