The South China Morning Post today announced the launch of ‘SCMP Research’, a new knowledge vertical dedicated to providing the latest intelligence and insights on leading industries in China.

Targeted at a global audience of business leaders and industry observers, ‘SCMP Research’ publishes reports that provide actionable intelligence, deep dives, case studies, data and first-hand insights while exploring forecasts and implications for the future. These English-language reports focus on China’s unique and complex markets and provide in-depth analysis for specific industries and subregions of the country.

The reports are produced by SCMP Research in close collaboration with the Post’s award-winning news and infographics team, along with a group of external experts including strategic consultants, professional researchers and industry insiders. Each report is accompanied by a webinar series that provides exclusive and unique access to executives and experts for further analysis.

“SCMP Research aims to serve global stakeholders and elevate critical understanding about China. The speed of China’s growth is extraordinary but the market remains complex and oftentimes opaque. This knowledge product includes both independent journalism and insider expertise, providing clarity through deep insights that can inform decisions for international businesses, institutional researchers and policymakers around the world," said Gary Liu, SCMP CEO.

Said Ang Jin, SCMP’s Chief of Staff & SVP, Strategy, “There is a growing demand for high-quality industry reports focused on China, and SCMP Research will fill that need with comprehensive intelligence and insights, backed by the strength of SCMP’s editorial expertise.”

Today, SCMP Research released the China Internet Report 2020 which delves into key technology trends such as the impact of Covid-19 on China’s digital transformation, mass adoption of 5G across the country and the continued evolution of live-streaming. Upcoming reports include a deep-dive on China’s healthcare industry that will be released in August 2020.

Previous releases include the China AI Report published earlier this year, which examines the development of artificial intelligence and its deployment across multiple industries. Both reports tap a wealth of industry knowledge and quality journalism from SCMP’s Technology Desk. Please visit for more details.
