Bringing the most important news about everything in and around China
For those that reside outside its borders, China is a country that is shrouded in mystery. For those that reside within China, it is the rest of the world that is is mysterious. The majority of its citizens exist behind a virtual iron curtain known as the "The Great Firewall", and its unorthodox policies and obscure system of governance often keeps the country out of the global public eye and insulated from foreign critique. As such, The China Insider is dedicated to sharing under-reported, uncensored content about the key events happening in China today.
Our staff is composed of a group of writers (insiders) who have all lived and worked in China.* Our goal is to share relevant news and experiences with the world, as we feel China has become too important to ignore. Our aim is not to generate vitriol or ill-feeling towards China nor its citizens, but to provide insight into the inner workings of this global behemoth, and how its actions continue to impact us all. Through our articles, we hope to provide honest portrayals of culture and daily life in China, the intentions and actions of the Chinese Communist Party, and, ultimately, bring a better general understanding of the country to our readers.
