Covering Asia’s New Order

New. Now. Next. Media Conference 2019
May 30 - June 2, 2019 in Hong Kong

N3Con is Covering Asia's New Order.

The world order is being upended, and nowhere is that truer than in Asia. Economies are being reshaped by the rise of China. Scientists are birthing gene-edited humans. Strongmen are rising, alliances are shifting—and the press is fighting for its independence.


This Is Where East Meets West.

Organized by the Asian American Journalists Association’s Asia chapter, N3Con 2019 also coincides with the 30th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protests, a watershed moment for the region that reverberates around the world today. From this vantage point, we’ll look both to the past and into the future to see how we can better inform readers today.
