Asia Times

Asia Times is a Hong Kong-based English-language news website covering politics, economics, business and culture from an Asian perspective.[1]It is now known as "Asia Times" or "AT", and has dropped the "Online" part of its name. The website is a direct descendant of the Bangkok-based print newspaper that was launched in 1995 and closed in mid-1997.[2]

Asia Times Online was created early in 1999 as a successor in "publication policy and editorial outlook" to the print newspaper Asia Times, owned by Sondhi Limthongkul, a Thai media mogul and leader of the People's Alliance for Democracy.

The site was relaunched with a new logo and design in October 2016 with Uwe Parpart as editor.[3] Other executives include Cecil Ho, former Chief Financial Officer of ReOrient Group Limited.

The new publishing company is Asia Times Holdings Limited,[4] incorporated and duly registered in Hong Kong with offices in Bangkok and New Delhi.Many reporters from the Asia Times print edition continued their careers as journalists, and a group of those contributors created Asia Times Online as a successor to Asia Times.[5] The word "Online" is no longer part of the website news portal. Patrick Dunne is Managing Editor.


Asia Times ( averages 100,000 readers every day.[citation needed] In 2006, The New York Times described Asia Times Online as "one of the most prominent of the [English-language] regional publications" covering Asia.[6]
