About China Brief

China Brief is a source of timely information and cutting-edge analysis for policymakers, intelligence and military personnel, academics, journalists and business leaders based primarily on indigenous sources. It is edited by Arran Hope, with the assistance of Sunny Cheung, and under the direction of Peter Mattis. In addition to its audience in the United States, China Brief is widely read in East Asia, where articles are regularly translated and reprinted in leading newspapers, journals and websites. Through the use of indigenous sources and detailed and objective analysis, China Brief keeps US public and private sector decision-makers alike informed of developments and trends in China. Writers include Senior Fellow Willy Wo-Lap Lam, Sunny Cheung, Kenneth Allen, and other experts, many of whom are based in Asia.
