Instytut Badań Chin Współczesnych
Contemporary China Studies Institute is a first non-governmental organization in Poland focused on the researches over the contemporary China as a one of the major world powers. As such cannot be neglected by any state as well as any nation concerning its rising strength at the world politics, diplomacy, economy. At the same time knowledge in Poland about modern China is limited, often based on the stereotypes and outdated information. Institute’s role is to fill that gap and to help Polish institutions, enterprises and individuals to build effectively proper relationships with Chinese partners.

Niewielu jest w Polsce ludzi, którzy mają o handlu z Państwem Środka tak głębokie i wszechstronne pojęcie, jak Leszek Ślazyk. W morzu "ekspertów od Chin", obiecujących złote góry dzięki opanowaniu trudnej sztuki podawania wizytówki dwiema rękami, Leszek wziął na siebie rolę latarni, stającej na twardym gruncie i odsłaniającej mielizny oraz rafy. Warto go wysłuchać, bo zebrał wiele doświadczeń i umie je sprzedać.
