This final chapter will summarise the main points that The Future Foreign Correspondent book makes and discusses them in light of future challenges and opportunities that a digital news landscape offers. It will outline how some aspects of being a ‘future’ foreign correspondent will and must change, and yet how some traditional skills remain important but are still to be further entrenched, such as the need for more cultural understanding within the global media sphere.
