Circular economy is an important support for countries in the world to promote green and low-carbon transformation, and the development of circular economy is not a one-day achievement and requires all-round efforts. Due to the differences in the level of economic and social development of various countries or regions, it is determined that there must be differences in the starting point and path of developing circular economy in different countries or regions. Therefore, it needs a kind of thinking about where and where to start to build the benchmarking management of the world circular economy. Based on the above considerations, this paper discusses the positioning, role and challenges of global circular economy benchmarking management under the current carbon neutral strategic framework from the perspective of international economics. The strategy is briefly analyzed, and relevant countermeasures and suggestions are put forward.
