China Daily

Founded in 1981, the China Daily is the leading English-language newspaper in China and an authoritative English voice of the Chinese government.

In addition to the mainland edition, which is distributed around the globe, the China Daily Group also publishes a Hong Kong edition and an education paper, 21st Century Weekly, for several age groups.

The paper also has an associated website that publishes news and hosts discussion forums in both English and Chinese. Managed separately from the print newspaper, the China Daily website's odd editing decisions and poor sourcing practices have not reflected well on its parent publication.

However, the past few years have seen substantial improvements to the newspaper and website, in both design and content, as the China Daily has tried to be more market-driven.
