Sinica backgrounder: 40 years of change in China, from the end of the Cultural Revolution to today


John Holden has a long and storied personal history in China, spanning the entire duration of the period of reform and opening. One of his earliest jobs was interpreting for National Geographic on a 1981 expedition along the Yellow River to its headwaters in Tibet. He has steered the China operations of Cargill, a massive multinational company that was one of the earliest foreign investors in food and commodities processing in China, and led the Beijing office of communications firm Hill+Knowlton. In addition, he has been a fixture of the leadership of the American Chamber of Commerce in Beijing and has served as president of the National Committee on United States–China Relations. He is currently associate dean of the prestigious Yenching Academy at Peking University.

The November 10 Sinica Podcast features a conversation with John covering the gamut of his rich curriculum vitae and his views on politics, foreign business, education and the sweeping changes that China has seen since the end of the Cultural Revolution.
