Published every Wednesday

You might be sick of hearing about the “rise of China,” but East Asia has other important power centers too, such as Japan and South Korea. This newsletter captures the latest updates from the whole region, including China, covering business, politics, and more.

Articles include stories from local news outlets in the region, as well as the big media houses. East Asia continues to be a technology hub and this newsletter covers the entire gamut of the region’s tech space, from mobile phones to cutting-edge mechanization in manufacturing.

One of the major stories going forward is of course the region’s responses to the ongoing pandemic. After a strong beginning handling the crisis, we hope to cover articles that analyze the reasons behind this success as well as future challenges.

    Editor: Christopher Brennan Tensions between the opposition in Hong Kong and its government, as well as Beijing, have been mounting for years, with last summer's protests one of the earliest subjects covered by this Digest when we launched more than a year ago. Now a new national security law has been imposed, with some fearing it will forever change the city by criminalizing "subversion." This week's Digest, gathered with the Deepnews Scoring Model, explores the law and its aftermath, with articles from local sources as well as those wondering about Hong Kong's place in the world going forward.
