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