About Us


  • Chinascope is a media research entity that gathers, translates, and periodically analyzes Chinese-language media reporting and documents that are generally inaccessible to the West. Through its daily reports and publications, Chinascope makes important, original Chinese source material available to the many parties for whom such information is increasingly vital. Today more than ever elected officials, policy analysts, scholars, and corporations must keep abreast of developments in China. Chinascope’s candid and objective presentation allows readers to feel the pulse of PRC opinion makers. Its contents provide a unique window into Chinese policy making, official attitudes, social developments, changing perceptions of the West, and much more. The organization is based in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area, and is owned by Global Communications Association, Inc., an independent, nonpartisan, 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization.
