From election campaigns to financial crises in Europe, Owen has nearly 20 years of experience.
His path is a classic reporter’s story: learning shorthand to cover the courts for a local daily newspaper, to newswires then into TV.
He’s been outside 10 Downing Street when a British prime minister resigned; at the European Commission when the EU pulled itself back from the brink of collapse; and criss-crossed South Africa following football fans at the World Cup.
Owen has been a business specialist with an eye on how fast money is changing sport.
Now he’s one of CGTN’s news correspondents trying to explain perhaps the most complex story of our times: how China is moving to the forefront of the global economic order.
