Dr Jing Zhong Li

PhD in Asia-Pacific studies (Univ. of Leeds), Consultant, Journalist, Ex-CEO, China Monitor Services

Dr Li has in many different ways been at the centre of the re-vitalisation of East-West dialogue over the last two decades. Both as a businessman offering consultancy services to British companies and as senior interpreter to such political giants as Deng Xiao Ping, Zhao Zi Yang, Li Peng and Zhu Rong Ji, he has participated in and/or observed the complex processes of making things work at senior level across cultural frontiers. As a former writer and broadcaster for the BBC World Service, he has also been a keen commentator on all matters connected with China and the Chinese. He has contributed regularly to management training programmes over the last decade, helping Europeans deal more effectively with their Chinese partners.

Dr Li has recently joined the team of EAB associates specialising on China.
