Alumni Update: James Yan

We have a new update from James Yan, a former intern at the New York bureau of The Economist, who is now the paper’s Beijing correspondent.

The Marjorie Deane programme, I can say without exaggeration, is the single best opportunity for aspiring business and financial journalists. During my fellowship in the New York bureau of The Economist, I wrote about topics as diverse as long-dated government debt and Donald Trump’s border wall. I interviewed the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, attended press conferences in Manhattan and made reporting trips to rural America. In my new role as Beijing correspondent, I still reflect on the valuable lessons I learned while on the programme.
