Letter from the Editor: Asian Edition
I wanted to let you know about an exciting addition we are making to the Reuters Breakingviews service. Starting on Monday, we will add a fourth daily email edition produced by our expanded team led by Asia Editor Peter Thal Larsen.
As you have no doubt noticed over the past year, we have ramped up our coverage of the dynamic markets and economies of Asia. We now have a seven-strong team in the region, including bureaus in Hong Kong, Beijing and Singapore.
In the past year, our columnists in Asia have produced agenda-setting coverage of stories including China’s debt woes, Japan’s Abenomics experiment, the Chinese internet boom, the fallout for emerging markets from the Federal Reserve’s tapering of bond purchases and the machinations of Hong Kong’s tycoons.
The new daily edition will allow us to deliver our views in a more timely fashion during the Asian working day, and to better pace our output globally. Readers in Europe will find an early-morning briefing in their inboxes on what’s happened in Asia overnight. Readers in the Americas will get a late-night jump on the day ahead.
In addition to the sophisticated, pull-no-punches analytical insight you expect from Breakingviews, we will also provide a new daily video clip from Asia where our columnists in the region discuss the most interesting views of the day.
Happy reading from the entire Breakingviews team,
