Our process

Every weekday, our analysts collectively parse hundreds Chinese language laws, regulations, policies, articles, and reports coming out of China’s state agencies, media, and think tanks. We watch State Council press conferences. We hang out at industry events. And we stay on top of market and industry chatter through our extensive network of contacts in Beijing and Shanghai.

How we communicate

The best insights mean nothing if they are not understandable. We condense the insights we gather into sharp, readable analysis that is available to subscribers via daily updates, deep-dive reports, and personal briefings.

Facts, not agendas

Neutrality is a precious commodity. The increasing politicization of China issues makes it difficult to separate truth from hype. We aim to move beyond sensationalism and paint an accurate, nuanced picture of policy realities.

Experience-based expertise

We work exclusively with analysts that have long-term, on-the-ground experience in China, Chinese language capabilities, familiarity with China’s policy environment, and sector-specific knowledge.

Primary sources, primarily

Quality China analysis hinges on quality original sourcing. We rely principally on Chinese-language government documentation, statements by Chinese regulators and political leadership, expert local sources and comprehensive domestic media monitoring.

Beyond sector silos

Everything is connected. These days, economic issues are often tied to technology, technology is inseparable from politics, politics is wrapped up in global economics. That’s why our area specialists collaborate to take a wide-lensed view, and examine the economic, technological, political, and social realities of any given topic.

Diversity and inclusivity

The best analysis draws from multiple perspectives. Our diverse team hails from across the US, China, Europe, and greater Asia.
