Part of the AustCham MGSM CEO Forum Series

Under C.E.O. Mark Thompson’s leadership, The New York Times has evolved from a traditional American newspaper to a leading global digital news organization, adding millions of paid digital subscriptions around the world. But the media landscape that prompted those dramatic changes is still in upheaval, creating an existential moment for journalism. Mr. Thompson will explore some of the biggest challenges ahead, including the intensified repression of journalists around the world, the profound change in how consumers look for news and commentary, and the vital role of investigative journalism in serving an expanding international audience. You will also have a chance to meet our guest speaker Stephen Dunbar Johnson, President of The New York Times International. 

This event will be held at The China Club Hong Kong. Please ensure that you adhere to the strict dress code, which can be viewed here.
