In detail

James has 20 years' experience reporting on China's rise. James was a Reuters' reporter in the 1980s, then worked as the FT Bureau Chief in Beijing for seven years until 2005, and subsequently was an executive heading up the Pearson Group of companies' operations in the PRC. As a journalist for over two decades in Asia, James covered several of the events that have helped shape the region, reporting from China, Taiwan, Japan, Mongolia, former Soviet Central Asia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and other locations. As executive overseeing businesses in media, publishing and education, he executed an ambitious market entry strategy that involved acquiring three Chinese companies, launching two start-ups and managing a complex matrix of government relations.
