NYT moving staff from Hong Kong to Seoul

NYT moving staff from Hong Kong to Seoul

The New York Times is moving some of its Hong Kong staff to Seoul as concerns mount over the recently implemented security law. NYT said the law ’unsettled news organizations and created uncertainty about the city’s prospects as a hub for journalism’. The team relocating will not include correspondents covering HK but staff from the digital operation.

I expect more news organizations to follow suit. A lot of big media houses have their offices in Hong Kong, and with NYT moving to Seoul, others could look at going to Singapore, Malaysia, Tokyo, maybe? Who knows.
