Prior to joining the firm, Jing was an associate editor at a trade publication, Inside U.S. Trade, where she produced on-site coverage of the Sixth WTO Ministerial Conference held in Hong Kong. Jing's research focuses on political and economic developments in Asia and U.S. policies with respect to that region, particularly the greater China area. She has developed in-depth knowledge about China's policy-making process and business environment.
