Asia by Africa is creating engaging long form articles

Two largest continents. Two largest populations. Two largest opportunities.


These are the guiding ideas behind Asia by Africa and my writing on the surprising ways the world's two most dynamic regions are interacting. My name is Jeremy Luedi and I invite you to join me every week as we explore under-reported tales showcasing this dynamic relationship. A new story awaits you every week.




With so much going on its a shame that the news only reports the same half-dozen trending stories about each region. We've all read a hundred cookie-cutter articles about China's influence in Africa, and frankly they're boring. This is where Asia by Africa comes in, delivering long form stories you've never heard about or new angles on ones you thought you knew inside and out. Come with me as we journey from Point A to Point A in our eponymous feature series.

For instance, have you hear about African football slaves in Southeast Asia? Or how Bollywood conquered the hearts of Nigerians? Did you know that Africa is quickly becoming the largest market for traditional Chinese medicine? Or that without South Africa, Iran would not have a nuclear program?

These are just some of my recent articles that you can find on my sleek, modern site, complete with custom infographics and engaging photos that enrich your reading experience.

It is often hard to find writing that is both engaging and reliable, and in the era of fake news, you may rightly wonder who I am. I started writing on a regular basis five years ago and currently work as a freelance writer and editor.

My writing has appeared in The Diplomat, Courrier International, FACTA Magazine, Japan Times, Business Insider, Yahoo Finance, Asia Times, Qrius, and Seeking Alpha among others. I've also been referenced by TIME, Le Monde, The Washington Times, BBC and interviewed by OZY, Financial Sense and Radio Free Europe.
