Asia Times Holdings Limited is a media conglomerate with operations on several continents, including the Asia Times, the English-language publication launched in 1995.
Since its early days in Bangkok, Asia Times has been among the most credible names in news in the world’s most populous region. What began as a printed broadsheet distributed continent-wide, in 1998 became the world’s first fully digital news publication. With its October 2016 re-launch, Asia Times is again leading the way, incorporating digital tools – including a dynamic blogging platform that gives readers a voice – rarely seen in the Asian media market.
With a clean aesthetic and unique functionality, Asia Times stands apart as the only all-digital, pan-Asian site aimed specifically at English-speaking users. It is widely read not only in Asia, but also in Europe and in North America, where nearly half of its readership is based, regarding it as the must-read on Asian politics and finance.
In 2016, the Board of Directors named veteran editor and economist Uwe Parpart as Editor.
