Originally from Montreal, Jean-Francois is based in Hong Kong from where he covers the business beat of C&EN in Asia. His main geographical focus is China, a country that is the main regional producer, largest market, where more and more R&D takes places, and where a lot of foreign companies have their regional HQ. Other than living in Hong Kong since 1995, Jean-Francois also resided in Taiwan and Japan, for a total of nearly 30 years in East Asia. He speaks (and reads) decent Mandarin Chinese learned in Taiwan as well as conversational Japanese.
