The U.S., China and Japan have become strategically interdependent to an unprecedented degree. Each of these powers is increasingly sensitive to changes in the capabilities and policies of the others. To understand the global significance of contemporary developments in the Asia/Pacific region requires multilingual, inter-disciplinary knowledge and experience.
In 1997, a small group of Chinese researchers, scientists, economists and engineers with studying and working experience in Japan, residing mainly in Silicon Valley, founded the US-Japan-China Comparative Policy Research Institute (CPRI), an independent think tank focusing on comparative social, cultural, economical, political, and industrial policy issues. CPRI is the only think tank in the world to independently, specifically and comprehensively review and analyze the dynamic tri-fold interactions unfolding among the U.S., Japan and China. CPRI has established international networks, exchanges and cooperation with related institutes and individuals in the U.S., Japan, the greater China, and other regions. Among CPRI’s tasks is the introduction of less noticed, yet vital issues in one language to readers of the other languages in this trio of nations. Japan's National Institute for Research Advancement listed CPRI in its "World Directory of Think Tanks" 2005 Edition.
CPRI issues Comparative Policy Review, an annual collection of CPRI’s published writings, in print until 2008. Since 2008 CPRI has edited and published books in Chinese, English and Japanese.
CPRI also provides public lectures and articles, and media interviews through international and local San Francisco Bay Area channels. CPRI participates in educational institutes, magazines and international research institutes, such as H-Net, Sino-Japanese Studies, Spain's Contemporary History Association, and Japan's Research Commission on the Constitution. CPRI also provides inter-disciplinary strategic service in international trade, comparative industry policy, Asia Pacific cooperation, humanitarian tasks, and democracy & human/civil rights movement.
CPRI was incorporated in California as a non-profit educational public benefit corporation between 2002-2016 and was granted tax-exempt 501(c)(3) NPO status by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) of the U.S. Treasury Department.
Since 2016, CPRI has published translations and commentaries with the innovative Chinese Phonetic Elements (CPE) writing system.
