BBC World News' new Chief Business Correspondent Linda Yueh will make her debut on the channel on Monday, 13 May with live reports from Hong Kong throughout the day, starting at 0800 Hong Kong. Linda’s reports will also be available online and on radio.

Following a week in Beijing, Linda will tell us what other China experts are saying about the challenges the country’s new leadership face and how they have to go about tackling them. She’ll also be exploring how China is making the shift from factories to shops, and what lessons we can learn from Hong Kong, long considered China’s ‘laboratory’ when it comes to economic policy.

Linda’s guests will include Justin Yifu Lin, former Chief Economist of the World Bank, and billionaire businessman Sir David Tang.

Linda Yueh says: “I am excited to unlock what lies behind China’s extraordinary development and to show how the world of business is changing, especially with the dynamic rise of Asia.”
