APAC Editor

Hong Kong

Based in Hong Kong, Cichen Shen is the APAC Editor for Lloyd’s List. He is responsible for steering the APAC editorial team and covering a wide range of maritime sectors, from shipbuilding and ship finance to logistics and regulations.

Previously Lloyd's List's China Editor, Cichen is a consistent provider of first-hand news and insights about the country’s fast-changing maritime industry and its influence on world trading patterns. 

Outside of shipping, Cichen is a fan of literature and is working on his first novel-- a love story derived from fragments of dreams. 

Prior to his roles at Lloyd’s List, Cichen worked as a reporter for China’s Caijing Magazine in Beijing and was a local producer for US National Public Radio (NPR) and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), while based in Shanghai.
