China Bites First Anniversary

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a year since I released the first issue of China Bites and so I’d like to take this moment to thank you for all your support, feedback and comments over the past 12 months. 

There never seems to be a shortage of topics and news to write about when you’re focused on China, which only proves the importance and relevance of China News in our daily lives, both now and in the future. 

Subscribe now and watch this space for more China Bites in the months ahead – I promise to keep them short, concise, relevant and informative!
