ASIA TIMES is a
Hong Kong -based English-language news website
covering politics , economics , business and culture "from an Asian
perspective". 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.
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 von Parpart as editor-in-chief. This was after a change in
March 2015, when it came under new management and ownership, including
Von Parpart and
David P. Goldman , an American economist and author
who writes for
Asia Times under the pseudonym Spengler. Other
executives include Cecil Ho, former Chief Financial Officer of
ReOrient Group Limited.
The new publishing company is
Asia Times Holdings Limited,
incorporated and duly registered in
Hong Kong with offices in Bangkok
and New Delhi. It derives part of its revenues from advertising, and
from the resale of original content to other publications and news
The site offers news and commentary by distinguished analysts and
correspondents, spanning the spectrum of Asian issues and the global
issues that intersect with them. As the successor to the
newspaper, it draws on a generation of editorial experience and an
extensive network of contributors.
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. The word "Online" is no
longer part of the website news portal. Former Editor in Chief Doug
Tsuruoka is now Editor at Large.
