Henry Sanderson is a Journalist and author based in London.
I grew up in Hong Kong and studied in the UK and the US. I’ve worked as a journalist in New York, Beijing, and London. While living in Beijing for seven years I co-authored a book with Michael Forsythe (now at the New York Times) about China’s largest overseas lender, China Development Bank, which lent billions to countries such as Venezuela, playing a key role in the spread of China’s power and state capitalism overseas.
I’m particularly interested in the geopolitics of the global energy transition and how individual Chinese companies define China’s embrace of the world.
I currently work as executive editor for Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, a leading provider of data and analysis for the lithium-ion battery supply chain.
I live in London with my wife and two children.
