The Foreign Correspondents' Club of China is the professional association of Beijing-based journalists reporting on China for audiences around the world. Representing more than 40 nations, we are accredited journalists, diplomats, media specialists, authors, academics, public relations consultants and corporate personnel.
The FCCC organizes a full programme of talks and social events, and is a vibrant hub of networking for China-watchers, media analysts and journalists.
In its current incarnation, the Foreign Correspondents Club of China set up shop in 1981. It was a time when the corps of international journalists in Beijing was beginning to mushroom, as China’s “open door” economic reforms kicked in and the government set out to normalize diplomatic ties with Western nations.
