In 2012 October, the CPAFFC initiated a public program titled Rainbow Bridge, which established a bridge of cooperation, development and mutual benefit between the Chinese poverty-stricken revolutionary  base area and the multinational enterprises. Up to now, there had been over 40 multinational enterprises participated in the Rainbow Bridge Program. The Global CEO Council was the extension of the Rainbow Bridge, which was expected to help the CEOs from the leading enterprises of the Global economy to understand a true, objective and comprehensive China in form of roundtable summit. At the same time the Global CEO Council would also provided a new platform of enhancing friendship, cooperation and mutual benefit.
