CNBC will open a bureau in Guangzhou
CNBC announced plans Tuesday to open a bureau in Guangzhou focused on covering China tech news.
The new bureau will be headed by CNBC Asia’s technology correspondent, Arjun Kharpal, who will relocate from the network’s London headquarters.
The reporting and content from the bureau will be featured globally across all of CNBC’s platforms, including TV, CNBC.com and social.
“Guangzhou is home to some of the biggest tech players on the planet,” said KC Sullivan, president and managing director of CNBC International, speaking from CNBC’s conference, East Tech West, which kicked off Tuesday in the Nansha district of Guangzhou.
“With innovation front of mind for our global audience, our new bureau will allow us to deliver a deeper focus on the China tech story as well as enhancing our editorial presence across the Greater Bay area.”
