Thank you so much for subscribing to this newsletter, fully dedicated to sharing information and insight on everything related China’s interaction with the world.
Whatever its role, China’s a big guy in the world now. Its actions and words matter, a lot.
But in the meantime, I believe there’s a deficit for the understanding of Beijing. Gaps in language, culture, and perspective all contribute to this deficit. In a world where the crust of international politics is constantly rearranging themselves, such deficit may have dire consequences.
That is the reason I’m starting this newsletter, which I hope can become a small force to diminish that deficit and perhaps receive some credit if World War III never happens.
I’d like to disclose that I am a journalist with Xinhua News Agency since 2011, I’ve worked in Damascus from 2012 to 2015, and Washington, D.C. from 2016 to 2019. In Syria I covered the civil war and in Washington I was both a witness and victim to the big decoupling.
To be clear, everything I say in this newsletter only represent my personal opinion, not that of Xinhua.
I promise I will only offer my best judgment and sincere opinion in this newsletter, and in return I hope you’ll tell a few friends about this newsletter if you find it useful.
Any feedback is greatly welcomed and appreciated at firstname.lastname@example.org, my twitter account is also open for dm.
