Reporting on China: The Plight of Entrepreneurs Photo

This seminar will be given by David Barboza, co-founder of The Wire and WireScreen.
David Barboza is the co-founder of The Wire Digital Inc., a New York-based news and data platform focused on China and global supply chains. The startup consists of a digital weekly news magazine, called The Wire, and a data and software analytics platform named WireScreen. Previously, Barboza was a longtime business reporter and foreign correspondent at The New York Times. In 2013, he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting “for his striking exposure of corruption at high levels of the Chinese government, including billions in secret wealth owned by relatives of the prime minister, well-documented work published in the face of heavy pressure from the Chinese officials.” He was also part of the team that won the Pulitzer Prize for explanatory reporting, for his coverage of Apple’s operations in China. That same year, he won a George Polk Award for foreign reporting.
This event will be held in-person only in Rubenstein 414AB and will not be recorded. It is being co-sponsored by the Rajawali Foundation Institute for Asia and the Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies. Lunch will be served.
