China Analysis Digest #1
Welcome to Neican’s newest initiative: China Analysis Digest.
Each week we scan a range of sources, aggregate them, and send you a list of China-related analyses.
The aim of this digest is to make it easier for you to stay up-to-date.
We will be experimenting with presentation, format and sources over the next few months. Please email me your feedback, suggestions, and/or non-violent complaints.
Have a good day.
