Brief Introduction

The foundation and achievement of Chinese Association of Productivity Science

The Chinese Association of Productivity Science (CAPS) was founded in November 1980. It was previous named Chinese Research Institute of Productivity Economics and renamed CAPS in November 1995 with the approval from the Ministry of Civil Affairs. Registered in the Ministry of Civil Affairs and being administered by the National Bureau of Statistics,CAPS is an academic mass organization devoting into the study of productivity theories and practices. In 1987, it was admitted to be member of the World Confederation of Productivity Science (WCPS). Moreover, in 2005, Mr. Chen Shengchang, Vice Chairperson and Secretary-general of CAPS, was elected the Director of the Board of WCPS.

Ever since its establishment, members of CAPS have published hundreds of monographs and several thousand of articles on productivity. Jointly with relevant organizations, we have done three integrated surveys of Yangtze River. In addition, we have ever held development strategy forums for some provinces, cities, counties as well as enterprises for many times. There have been 15 academic annual meetings and some academic forums hosted by CAPS. Also, CAPS has performed researches and organized appraisal activities for the development of some provinces, cities, large-scale enterprises, some of which had won favorable reception from national leaders. Regarding the Research on the Development of Chinese Productivity approved by the former Premier Wen Jiabao, we have achieved a series of periodical successes. He had made many instructions and comments on the achievements. Meanwhile, some relevant government departments have also cited or made use of our results in long-term planning and policy formulation. What’s more, CAPS has sent delegations to attend international meetings held by WCPS several times, and has successfully organized the 12th & 14th World Productivity Congress collaborating with Hong Kong Productivity Council and Shenyang Municipal government respectively.
