James Kynge is a journalist with over 20 years of experience reporting from Asia. Born in England, Kynge started his career at Reuters before joining the Financial Times as its China Bureau Chief from 1998 to 2005. During this time, he covered significant events such as the Japanese deflation, the Tiananmen Square massacre, the rise of the five former Soviet central Asian republics, the Asian financial crisis of 1997, and China's reform and opening since 1998.

Fluent in Mandarin, Kynge is a frequent commentator on Chinese and Asian issues for various media outlets, including NPR, CNN, and the BBC. He also serves as the principal of China Confidential and Renminbi Compass, research services provided by the Financial Times. These services offer comprehensive analysis on various aspects of the Chinese economy, including consumer behavior, manufacturing, logistics, employment, and underground banking.

Kynge's first book, "China Shakes The World: A Titan's Rise and Troubled Future - and the Challenge for America," explores China's emergence as a global power and has been translated into 19 languages. He has received several awards for his work, including the 2016 Wincott Foundation award for Financial Journalist of the Year and the 2006 Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award for "China Shakes The World".
