About "Inside China"

Welcome to Inside China! This is a newsletter that provides an in-depth analysis of the latest developments within China.

Sometimes, perception can be more influential than hard facts, particularly among different civilizations where communication barriers can lead to misperceptions. In an era dominated by overwhelming narratives, it has become increasingly difficult to discern what is truly happening. I started this newsletter with the aim of bridging that gap by providing reliable information about China and offering readers a clear and balanced perspective.

That’s some of the work I’ve done:


The mission of Inside China is to serve as a "public good" for people who want to enhance their understanding of China by conducting thorough research and providing accurate, thoughtful, and comprehensive insights into China. Whether it's politics, economics, society, or culture, we delve deep into the topics that matter most, helping you understand the forces shaping one of the world's most influential countries.

About Yingshi Gao

I’m Yingshi Gao, a CGTN reporter based in Beijing. Growing up in the heart of the Chinese capital, politics, history, and foreign affairs have always been part of my daily life. This early exposure naturally led me to pursue a degree in international relations at the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University in Washington, DC.

As a Gen-Z, I’ve worked as a youth culture researcher for Bilibili—the Chinese equivalent of YouTube, boasting 400 million users. This experience has made me acutely aware of the dynamic and ever-changing landscape of Chinese society, especially among the younger generation. My deep dive into youth culture allows me to provide the latest analysis on the trends and behaviors shaping China's future leaders. Through this lens, I hope to help you understand the generation that will drive China's evolution in the years to come.
