Three think tanks related to Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) development and education modernization were included into the Chinese Think Tank Index (CTTI), according to a list released on December 19.


The included think tanks 

Of 315 think tanks that applied for inclusion of CTTI, only 99 were added this year, as per the 2020 CTTI-included think tanks listing released by the Nanjing University Center for Chinese Think Tank Studies and Evaluation and the Think Tank Research and Release Center of Guangming Daily.

The CTTI is one of the most influential on-line information systems about think tanks in China.
