    15. 15. Story Focus by Market > Singapore media showed a much greater focus on the policy challenges for President Obama > While Chinese media focused almost entirely on the event itself, South East Asian media and in particular Singapore media showed an issues focus > These results seem to indicate a “wait and see” approach from the Chinese and Hong Kong media
    16. 16. Economy mentions > Singapore media also led the way on discussion of U.S. economic concerns, with this issue mentioned more often than in any other analysed market > T he relatively low level of discussion of economic issues at the time of President Obama’s inauguration in Chinese and Hong Kong media is surprising
