De Gruyter has moved into its new representative office in the People’s Republic of China. Located in the heart of Beijing, the office is being run by Shi Xingguo, who is Chinese and has international publishing experience and a degree in German literature. The office is expected to serve as a contact point and interface between the German publisher and its Chinese partners and promote the exchange of information between academics.

De Gruyter officially started establishing links with Chinese institutions and publishers in 2010. The publisher has signed several cooperative agreements with Chinese partners, including Science Press, Higher Education Press, Commercial Press, Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press and Chinese academies.
