Hong Kong, May 16, 2018: Reuters, the world’s largest international multimedia news provider, has announced that it will open a new bureau in Shenzhen, China, later this month.
The new bureau reflects Reuters ongoing commitment to reporting on China thoroughly and its moves to bolster business and companies coverage in China and globally. The establishment of the Shenzhen bureau recognises the pivotal role of the Pearl River Delta region, and China more broadly, in the global technology industry.
The Shenzhen bureau will be headed by Reuters new South China Correspondent, Sue-Lin Wong. Originally from Sydney, Australia, Sue-Lin joined Reuters in 2014 and has been based in Beijing since late 2015, covering economics and general news.
“This opening of the new Shenzhen bureau is a mark of Reuters commitment to deepen our coverage of companies in Asia, especially in China, where the government is pushing a strategy of developing as a technology superpower in emerging fields, ranging from artificial intelligence to next-generation semiconductors”, said Kevin Krolicki, Regional Editor Asia at Reuters.
He added, “We also look forward to providing Reuters readers with a more deeply reported view of South China, as part of our commitment to providing comprehensive, objective reporting on China.”
