The Chairman of Thomson Reuters China David Schlesinger was invited to the general assembly of Journalism and Communication Department at Hong Kong Shue Yan University yesterday. He said the news industry in China was still limited everywhere, but already had greatly improved more than ever. He said reporters in China had to be careful to protect themselves as well.


"The freedom of press in China is making progress," David Schlesinger said. He was in charge of the Reuters Beijing office from 1991 to 1994. In 1991, the period just ended the Tiananmen Square protests on 4 June 1989, the flow of information was completely abandoned and news organizations were all government-controlled.

"Although there are still various restrictions now, when compared to twenty years ago, China has already granted much greater freedom to journalists," Schlesinger said.


"Reporters in China have to take extra care, and everything reported must 100% based on facts," Schlesinger said. He said whenever a reporter holding a foreign passport, at most would be deported but they could re-enter again. However, Chinese reporters in China might face various pressures, and even the risk of imprisonment. He said no matter how good and newsworthy the news story was, it was worthless to risk on the personal safety of journalists.
