Caixin is a Beijing based publication with its finger on the pulse of business China generally. Despite its local base, it is not afraid to call things as they are. Caixin is a FREEMIUM publication, some stories are by subscription only. Highly recommended
Jing daily focuses on China Luxury, which even if it is not your focus, should still be of interest to you as it is a very good gauge of the marketing climate in China.Where luxury goes, mainstream usually follows.
Most businesses know this one. It can get a bit salacious and sensational at times. Is, more oft than not, blocked in China because of its open criticism. Never-the-less, it’s business stories are another excellent source of learning. Not as good as Caixin, worth browsing.
Yep, we know what you are thinking. Yet despite its reputation as “Party Mouthpiece” its business and technology section are often informative. It does take a more conservative, superficial approach but should not be written off as a source for China biz news.
Yicai is a Shanghai based well respected Chinese language site focused on economics and finance. The Global site is an English language option with broader categories. However it lacks the depth and breadth of Caixin while its pro Gvt style of reporting gives it a less adventurous feel. If you are looking for purely China business financial and economics statistical data then this will be helpful. However our top pick is still Caixin.
Title says it all really. Their self description states:
“News & Analysis on Cosmetics Formulation & Packaging in Asia-Pacific.” If this is your industry and you want to keep up in Asia, welcome. They also have an EU ans US version.
Updated less often~
Sixth Tone is less of a news site and more a sharp lens on China society and what is happening at grass roots level. Ideal as your early warning system for tends and changes in China. Not afraid to push boundaries in some of their content.
If tourism is your focus, this site updates fortnightly with China travel / tourism news. If not your sector, this take you to their home page where you can chose what fits you.
Yes, lux again. You know why. But also worth considering, your brand may well be seen as lux in China due to its pricing.~ They provide a weekly update on business intelligence on the luxury market in China.
A Shanghai-based Creative Food & Beverage Agency creating experiential F&B. From pop-ups, activations, and disruptive campaigns for brands in China. We link to their monthly “blog” because- well, its rather good!
Ahh, it is difficult to go or do much in China without the seemingly omnipotent and ubiquitous Alibaba. A finger in every pie, if there weren’t so many pies. We link to their “New Retail” news page. Why? Because it is the future today of retailing in China. They also produce some brilliant videos.
Think China is a Singapore based Ezine focused on China economy, politics, culture and society. As an off shore publication it provides a clear, objective viewpoint. Whilst not directly aimed at business, it is ideal for helping build a real time background snapshot of what is going on at grass roots in China.
