The 48 Group Club - The ‘Icebreakers’ The Mission of The 48 Group Club – ‘The Icebreakers’ 48家集团俱乐部 —“破冰者”的使命

“以史为鉴是中国的一个名言。反思过去很有意 义,但是我们看48家集团俱乐部—‘破冰者’, 看到的不是55岁老,而是55岁青。肯定有人 会 说,中国的经济奇迹般增长,企业 界 对 ‘ 破 冰’的需要早已成为过去。对这个问题的回答需 要强调的是,现在比55年前更需要‘破冰’, 只不过重点不同。在接下来的篇章中,我们会展 读最早的‘破冰者’们的故事,他们是开创贸易 的 先驱。之后我们才在以后的岁月里 以 ‘ 破 冰 者’描述我们的使命,这就是解除西方世界对中 国过时的概念,从而真正了解中国及其文化的紧 迫需要。胡锦涛主席对我精辟的概括总结了这个 挑战:‘中国有着巨大的贸易顺差,但是也有庞 大的文化赤字。’历史上,各国不能在人民之间 建 立对话和互信的经济错位实例比比 皆 是 。 这 个‘文化赤字’的‘破冰’,就是现在48家集团 俱乐部 —‘破冰者’们的使命。”


se history as a mirror is a famous phrase in China (see page 62). There is a great

value in reflecting on the past but we see the 48 Group Club – The ‘Icebreakers’ as not being 55 years old – but 55 years young. Surely some might say that with the phenomenal economic rise of China the need for ‘Icebreaking’ by the business community is well past. The answer is emphatically that there is now an even greater need for ‘Icebreaking’ than 55 years ago but with a different focus. Through the next pages we will unfold the story of the original ‘Icebreakers’ who pioneered the opening up of trade, before we describe our mission for the coming years, which is the urgent need to unfreeze out dated concepts of China in the western world and so enable a real understanding of China and its culture. President Hu Jintao neatly summarised the challenge to me, “China has a massive trade surplus – but a vast cultural deficit”. History is littered with examples of economic dislocation where countries have failed to build dialogue and mutual respect between their


peoples. ‘Icebreaking’ that ‘cultural deficit’ is now the mission of the 48 Group Club – The ‘Icebreakers’.

And working in cooperation with the Chinese government and Chinese business I hope to see by 2010, 100 more Chinese inward investment projects coming to Britain, over 100 Chinese companies listed on the London Stock Exchange, up to 100,000 Chinese students studying in Britain, 100 partnerships between Chinese and British universities and other academic institutions, 100 more scientific collaborations between Chinese and British firms with Britain benefiting from a large share of investment from China’s £1 billion ($US 2.03 billion) Sovereign Wealth Fund.

e see the relationship between our two countries as among our top international priorities. The 48 Group

Club helped establish that relationship and continues to play a major role in China-UK relations. According to our statistics, bilateral trade last year was £19.5 billion ($US 39.7 billion). After attaining the target of £19.7 billion ($US 40 billion) two years ahead of time, there is good reason for us to believe that the PM’s new target of £29.5 billion ($US 60 billion) will be met by 2010. As the Chinese Premier suggested to Prime Minister Brown,


we will focus on the five following areas: technological trade, innovation, energy and environment, financial services and intellectual property.

ill China be the next innovation superpower? As highstreet shoppers now know well, “Made in China” is no

longer a tag confined to cheap jeans and plastic toys. Hightech goods accounted for 35% of China’s total manufacturing exports in 2005, up from 16% in 1995. China produces 80% of the world’s photocopiers, 60-70% of mobile phones, 60% of digital cameras, and 50% of computers. Since the late 1990s, China’s national spend on R&D has been growing by around 20% a year, or twice China’s overall economic growth rate. The OECD estimates that in 2006 Chinese Government and industry together spent $136 billion on R&D adjusted for purchasing power parity. That is more than Japan ($US130 billion) and second only to the US ($US330 billion). There will be no let up in China’s pursuit of innovation. It intends to increase its total R&D spend as a share of GDP from 1.4% at present to 2% by 2010 and 2.5% by 2020. It aims

“邓小平先生是中国改革开放的总设计师,我们 现在可以根据他战略计划的成果来回顾这30年。 从1978年到2007年,中国的GDP增长了57.8倍, 年均增长率为9.7%。人均GDP从1978年的381元 增长到2007年的18971元,增长了49.79倍。贸 易额从1978年的200.6亿美元增长到2007年的 21700亿美元,增长了105倍。外汇储备跃居世界 第一,从1978年的1.67亿美元增长到2007年的 15300亿美元。这个经济变化是邓小平先生‘三 步走’战略计划的成果,目的是改善中国人民的 福祉。这个改善可以量化,1987年到2006年间, 城市家庭人均可支配收入增长了34倍,农村家庭 人均纯收入增长了27倍。贫困人口从2.5亿减少 到2000万。现在试行的新农村合作医疗已经覆盖 了4亿多农民。”


r. Deng Xiaoping, was the general architect of China’s reform and opening-

up, and we can now reflect over the past 30 years on the results of his strategic plan. From 1978 to 2007 China’s GDP grew by 57.8 times with an average annual growth rate of 9.7%. The per capita GDP increased from RMB381 in 1978 to RMB18971 in 2007, up by 49.79 times. The trade volume rocketed from $US20.6 billion in 1978 to $US 2.17 trillion in 2007, up by 105 times. The foreign reserves rank the first, with a significant gain from $US167 million in 1978 to $US1.53 trillion in 2007. This economic transformation was the product of Mr. Deng Xiaoping’s “three-step” strategic plan aimed at improving the welfare of the Chinese people. The improvements can be quantified between 1987 and 2006 with the per capita disposable income of urban households increased by 34 times and the per capita net income of rural households 27 times. The population in poverty decreased to 20 million from 250 million. Now

he fact that we are here today is due to a group of Chinese and British individuals who, over 50 years ago,

had the foresight to establish a body which aptly describes itself as the ‘Icebreakers’. The ‘Icebreakers’ had a vision. The vision was that the People’s Republic of China would reestablish itself as a leader among the nations of the world. The ‘Icebreakers’ believed that by working together they could, in a modest manner, contribute to China achieving its rightful position as a global power. I understand that your Premier, Mr Wen Jiabo, recently revalidated the

The 48 Group Club - The ‘Icebreakers’ History of the 48 Group Club - The ‘Icebreakers’ 48家集团俱乐部 —“破冰者”的历史

中华人民共和国于1949年成立,48家集团俱乐 部的历史始于上个世纪50年代初,当时“破冰 者”的创始人是最早同新中国建立经贸关系的西 方人。1950年,大不列颠及北爱尔兰联合王国 成为最早承认中华人民共和国的国家之一,但是 由 于朝鲜战争,两国关系很快变得敌对 冰 冷 。 1953年,新成立的英国促进国际贸易委员会主 任博伊德·奥尔勋爵率领一个由16家英国公司 代表组成的代表团来到中国,开启了最早的贸易 对 话—从而打破了坚冰,为他们赢得了 “ 破 冰 者”的称号。

The People’s Republic of China was founded in 1949 and the history of The 48 Group stems from the early 1950s when the founding ‘Icebreakers’ were the first Westerners to establish trade relations. In 1950 the United Kingdom became one of the first countries to recognise The People’s Republic of China but relations rapidly became hostile and frozen because of the war in Korea. Then in 1953 Lord Boyd-Orr – head of the newly formed British Council for the Promotion of International Trade – led a delegation of 16 representatives of British companies to China to open the first discussions on trade – and thus the ice was broken and the ‘Icebreakers’ earned their name.

Only a few photographs have survived recording the early meetings that established the 48 Group Club – The ‘Icebreakers’. This photograph was taken on 6th July 1953 at the signing of the ‘Business Arrangement’ in Beijing: Left to right – Dr Chi Chao-ting who played a crucial role on the Chinese side; Roland Berger; Harold Spencer, spokesman of the ‘Icebreaker’ mission; and half hidden, Professor Joan Robinson, the distinguished Cambridge University economist. 只有几张照片存留下来,记录建立48家集团俱乐 部—“破冰者”的早期会议。这张照片摄于1953年7月 6日,在北京签署《商务协议》时。从左至右:在中国 方面起了关键作用的冀朝顶博士;罗兰·博格;“破冰 者”之旅的发言人哈罗德·斯宾塞;被挡住了一半的剑 桥大学著名经济学家琼·罗宾逊教授。

“破冰者” 48家集团的名称在中国从国家主席到各层官员几乎人人皆知,了解其在中 英关系中的作用的人们,都对它怀有高度的敬意。 中华人民共和国于1949年成立,48家集团俱乐部的历史始于上个世纪50年 代初,当时“破冰者”的创始人是最早同新中国建立经贸关系的西方人。 1950年,大不列颠和北爱尔兰联合王国共和国成为最早承认中华人民共和 国的国家之一。 但是当时的朝鲜战争使两国关系曾经一度陷入僵化。1953年,新成立的英 国国际贸易促进委员会主任博伊德·奥尔勋爵率领一个由16家英国公司代 表组成的代表团来到中国,开启了最早的贸易对话 - 从而打破了坚冰, 为他们赢得了“破冰者”的称号。 48家集团俱乐部的信条是“平等互利”,这是遵循在中国广受尊敬的周恩 来总理的想法,他从1949年至1976年任国家总理,并于1953年最先使用了 这个口号。 今天,48家集团俱乐部继续为积极促进中英关系开展工作,并为在从商业 到文化的各个领域积极建设中英关系的人们提供了一个重要的、往往也是 关键的关系网络。俱乐部成员们相信,在解冻中国和世界之间的文化赤字 中,他们在起着至关重要的作用。 胡锦涛主席精炼地概括总结了这一挑战,他说,“中国和世界有着巨大的 贸易顺差,但是也有庞大的文化赤字。” 本书为纪念最早的那次开拓之旅55周年,并就中英两国所建立的深刻而真 实的理解过程中存在的挑战进行总结。 如需了解会员资格和进一步的信息,请联系
