His new book ‘Made in China: Wuhan, Covid and the Quest for Biotech Supremacy’ will be released later this year and with many years of experience in investigative journalism, Becker’s masterly knowledge of Chinese history and Chinese language offer unique insights that allow readers to reach their own conclusions as to the cause of the pandemic, a watershed in world affairs.

Jasper Becker started his career working in Brussels, Geneva and Frankfurt for The Associated Press. He worked for The Guardian newspaper and reported from Beijing from 1985 to 1989 and as such the paper nominated him as foreign correspondent of the year for his coverage of the 1989 Tiananmen demonstrations. In May 2002, he gave evidence about North Korea at a hearing held by the House of Representatives International Relations Committee and has given talks to the US Council for International Relations, and other venues.
