“The freedom of press in China is gradually improving in these 20 years,” said David Schlesinger, Chairman of Thomson Reuters China, in the General Assembly of Hong Kong Shue Yan University.

David Schlesinger worked in China since 20 years ago. In his opinion, there is more and more freedom of press. In the early 90’s, right after the June 4th Incident, media (must rely-past tense) on the Chinese government so as to report news.

But nowadays, media and citizen can voice out their opinion about the government. For example, internet users can express their comment on Weibo. This is a great leap toward freedom of speech.

Also, David Schlesinger mentioned that some of the newspapers, especially in the southern China are getting aggressive. They dare to criticize the government. Chinese reporters are going to study oversea too. This can enhance (their quality of...). “Self-censorship still exists in China, but I think the freedom of speech will improve,” he said.

Mr. Schlesinger said, Thomson Reuters China will not avoid sensitive issue about China. He believed the Chinese government will respect their job as they are reporting news truly and thoroughly. He admitted that it is very difficult to interview in China. “Although there are still many restrictions in China, it is a process to progress,” he said.
