Closer to China with R.L.Kuhn is a weekly show on CCTV News that brings the true, complex story of China to the world through candid, intimate discussions with China’s thought leaders and decision makers in all sectors.

Closer to China with R.L.Kuhn deals with the substantive, sophisticated and sensitive issues that China faces, primarily domestically but also internationally. We cover all China’s critical areas: politics, government, economics, business, finance, society, diplomacy, defense, science, etc.

Closer to China with R.L.Kuhn tackles the tough topics; we embrace debate and are unafraid of controversy. We believe that the fascinating, multifaceted truth about China is enriched by honesty, hard thinking, transparency and open access to ideas and information. We ask the hard, specific questions that the world wants to know about.
