Uncovering the truth in China is a difficult job. Reporters, foreign and domestic, have a difficult time in uncovering what is going on and then writing about it. Vincent Ni and Malcolm Moore have both covered China from various angles, both inside and outside the country and have first-hand experience of this difficulty. In this session, they discussed their experiences, interesting stories and how they covered politics, business, corruption and foreign policy in China.

Previously he was the Telegraph’s China correspondent for 6 years based in Beijing and Shanghai, before becoming Deputy Head of World News at the Telegraph.
