ASIA TIMES is a Hong Kong
Hong Kong
-based English-language news website covering politics , economics , business and culture "from an Asian perspective". It is now known as " Asia
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
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
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
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
Asia
Times Holdings Limited, incorporated and duly registered in Hong Kong
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 services.

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 Asia
Asia
Times newspaper, it draws on a generation of editorial experience and an extensive network of contributors.

Many reporters from the Asia
Asia
Times print edition continued their careers as journalists, and a group of those contributors created Asia Times Online as a successor to Asia
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.
