No. 129 | 2022 Retrospective – Part II | 31.12.2022

This week we want to share our second year roundup. This time, the content goes beyond what has appeared in our newsletters, which surpassed its 100th edition!

In addition to new productions, our team gave interviews and our articles were published in media around the world. We have compiled this material that contains extensive and in-depth analysis about China and its role in the world in 2022 for your easy access.

For another look back on the year, Mika Erskog, Tings Chak, and Marco Fernandes just joined Li Jingjing on her 2022 Recap livestream

The Crane

In July, we launched The Crane: An Africa-China Podcast,  a tool that presents a fresh look at the news, debates, and history around China-Africa relations, hosted by Dongsheng Collective members Amadeus Musumali & Mika Nhondo Erskog.

Poverty Alleviation in China 

In March, we also launched a series of six videos, for our Portuguese audience, about the Chinese poverty alleviation program, which was published by Brasil de Fato.


This year we continued with our “Explained” series with two important videos that provide information about the Chinese political system and the results of the 20th National Congress of the CPC.
