You are cordially invited to attend a breakfast meeting where Richard McGregor will discuss his new book “The Party: The Secret World of China's Communist Rulers” and share his views on the Communist Party’s approach to Asia.

Richard McGregor is a former China bureau chief for the Financial Times. Since 1990, he has spent almost 20 years in north Asia, initially in Taiwan, and then Tokyo, Hong Kong and Beijing, where he established offices for The Australian newspaper. He joined the Financial Times in Shanghai in 2000 and in 2005 he became their China bureau chief. He has also contributed to the BBC, the International Herald Tribune and the Far Eastern Economic Review. The key to understanding China is knowing who is really in charge. The Party: The Secret World of China's Communist Rulers tackles this conundrum head on. Meticulously crafted, well-informed, and entertaining, this account of China's ruling class chronicles the country's 30-year rise to major economic power despite high levels of poverty. Richard McGregor draws on his wealth of experience to uncover the true story of the Chinese Communist Party. The result is the most revealing glimpse yet of how this extraordinary organisation works. From business to the military, McGregor tracks down those on the inside, and reveals how they run the world's most populous country.

The event will adopt the usual Asia House format and all comments will be unattributable.

Interested participants should register early for the meeting by email to as spaces are limited.

I look forward to seeing you at Asia House.
