Boost your China literacy. With sponsorship from King & Wood Mallesons, ACRI presents a China Correspondents Panel.
The panel comprises three Australian journalists who reported from Beijing. We will question them on their insights. What are their conclusions about how China works? How did they cultivate sources? With their experiences, how do they think China is travelling?
Bob Carr questions: Helene Chung (ABC), Rowan Callick (The Australian), Trevor Watson (ABC).
Helene Chung, an ABC Beijing correspondent during 1983-1986, was the first female posted abroad by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and the first non-white reporter on Australian television.
Rowan Callick has written substantially about China for almost 20 years. He was China correspondent from 1996-2000 for the Australian Financial Review based in Hong Kong, and from 2006-2009 for The Australian, based in Beijing.
Trevor Watson offers extensive experience, having worked at the ABC for two decades. A Walkley Award winner, he was ABC correspondent in Canberra, New Delhi, Sydney, Bangkok, Beijing, Port Moresby and Singapore.

In 2014 the University of Technology, Sydney established the Australia-China Relations Institute (ACRI) as a think tank to illuminate the Australia-China relationship.
Our work is based on a positive and optimistic view of Australia-China relations, capturing the spirit of the 2014 announcement of a Free Trade Agreement and the commitments by both countries to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership.
