Protocol launches site focused on China
Tech news site Protocol, which launched a year ago, has now launched a site covering China technology news and issues.
Some of the site’s key coverage areas will be the BATH ecosystem, Chinese stocks, regulatory entities and the Chinese advantage in artificial intelligence.
“You cannot understand tech without understanding China tech,” said Protocol president Tammy Wincup in an email. “Today we launched Protocol | China with the largest Western newsroom investment in Chinese tech coverage to date. Our team of journalists and data scientists will marry analysis and rigorous reporting around how China’s biggest internet firms – and biggest acquirers – think and make decisions, the relationship between China’s government and its major tech players, and what this all means for U.S. companies in this next chapter.”
The executive director of the site is David Wertime, who launched Politico’s “China Watcher” last year.
It is currently staffed by two reporters and a research director, but Protocol China is looking to hire a research associate, a reporter and a director of strategic partnerships.
