Caixin Global Enters Content Partnership with The Straits Times
Caixin Global, the English language arm of Caixin Media, announced today a new content-sharing partnership with The Straits Times, Singapore’s most widely read newspaper. The wide-ranging partnership will allow these two leading publications to bring more rich and in-depth stories to their readers, and create synergy as they move forward.
As a country with over 70% ethnic Chinese population, Singapore has always been a key strategic partner with China in both trade and business. In 2017, Singapore was China's largest overseas investment destination among Belt and Road countries. Total bilateral trade between the two countries reached $137.1 billion. In addition, China has been Singapore's top investment destination since 1997 as well as the Republic's largest trading partner since 2013. In the face of rising protectionism and unilateralism, the two countries need to work together to forge a closer relationship and a shared future.
As the media group dedicated to providing financial news and wire services, Caixin has been active in the English-speaking world for years and has won numerous journalism awards globally. Caixin has had collaboration with top-tier international media, including the Wall Street Journal, BBC and Australian Financial Review, providing them with news coverage from the unique Chinese perspective.
“We are delighted to bring Caixin’s investigative financial and business journalism to international readers as global interest in China has increased in recent years,” said Hu Shuli, the founder and publisher of Caixin Media and chairwoman of Caixin Global. “We are also excited to share Straits Times’ outstanding coverage of regional and international affairs with Chinese readers," she added.
“ST covers Asia from a unique insider and independent perspective. We do this with our correspondents on the ground, as well as through partnerships with other leading media groups,” said Warren Fernandez, the editor-in-chief of The Straits Times and Singapore Press Holdings English, Malay, Tamil Media Group. “Caixin is one such partner whom we are happy to work with, to share our content with for the benefit of all our readers,” he said.
