Cindy Sui

Hi, I've been working for many years as a journalist, first in California, then Hong Kong, mainland China, Taiwan and now back in Hong Kong. I started out working for newspapers and then switched to wire agency reporting when I worked for Agence France Presse (AFP) as a Beijing-based foreign correspondent from 1999 to 2006. In late 2006, I moved to Taiwan and after freelancing for international, regional and local publications for about a year, I became the BBC's Taiwan correspondent, branching out into broadcast media (both radio and TV), while continuing to write text stories for its website. In the past decade, I also learned to film and edit my own video stories, some of which were the most viewed on the BBC's website. I'm available to do all sorts of journalism work except for fixing and translating, though I can refer you to friends and students who can help. In Hong Kong, I focus on writing analyses and feature stories about Hong Kong, Taiwan and mainland China, to help the world understand this important region. I speak Cantonese and Mandarin fluently and can read Chinese well-enough to understand press releases and media reports.

Dec. 10, 2023: BBC - Taiwan’s Balancing Act Former BBC Taiwan correspondent Cindy Sui meets two young Taiwanese voters, Shirley Lin and Dennis, who have very different views about the island, its future and its relationship with Mainland China. While one is a committed peace campaigner and seeks to reduce antagonism between Taiwan and China, the other has signed up to train with a citizen's army, to be ready for Chinese aggression. We follow them in their work, with their friends and hear their differing reflections on a place and an electorate being watched by a global audience.

I reported about Hong Kong's first district council elections since the "patriots only" rule for candidates and the national security law were adopted. By interviewing voters and people who boycotted the election, as well as a candidate, I offered readers a balanced and informative story.
