Reuters opens new bureau in Shenzhen

International news agency Reuters is to open a new bureau in Shenzhen, China, this month.

The bureau will be overseen by Sue-Lin Wong, who has served as a Reuters’ correspondent in Beijing since 2015.

The announcement:

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.”
