China’s English-lan­guage news­pa­per now in Latin Amer­ica

China Daily (Canada) - - ACROSS AMERICA -

China Daily, the na­tional English-lan­guage news­pa­per group in China, an­nounced to­day the launch of the China Daily Latin Amer­ica Weekly, a mile­stone in the me­dia group’s in­ter­na­tional ex­pan­sion to cover the world.

China Daily Latin Amer­ica Weekly is the lat­est ef­fort by the Chi­nese me­dia group to en­hance un­der­stand­ing be­tween China and in­ter­na­tional com­mu­ni­ties on all con­ti­nents through its edi­tions in North Amer­ica, Europe, the Asia Pa­cific and Africa in the past four years - and now in Latin Amer­ica.

Zhu Ling, publisher and ed­i­tor- in- chief of China Daily, said the re­la­tion­ship be­tween China and Latin Amer­ica is grow­ing and com­plex, and not al­ways un­der­stood — not just by those in other parts of the world, but by Latin Amer­i­cans and Chi­nese, too.

“We hope to set that right, and that is why China Daily, China’s na­tional English-lan­guage news­pa­per, is launch­ing a Latin Amer­i­can pub­li­ca­tion to­day,” Mr. Zhu said.

China Daily Latin Amer­ica Weekly aims to be a prime source for news, in­for­ma­tion, com­ment and anal­y­sis on is­sues that af­fect both China and Latin Amer­ica, pro­duced and dis­trib­uted by its pro­fes­sional in­ter­na­tional teams in China, its Amer­i­can head­quar­ters in North Amer­ica and fu­ture cor­re­spon­dents in Latin Amer­ica.

Larry Lee, CEO of China Daily Hold­ing Ltd, said China Daily Latin Amer­ica Weekly is be­ing dis­trib­uted in Sao Paulo and Brasilia and will ex­pand to Rio de Janeiro be­fore the FIFA World Cup

in Brazil.

“Af­ter es­tab­lish­ing the net­work in Brazil, we will then en­ter coun­tries such as Ar­gentina, Peru and Chile,” Mr. Lee said.

At the same time, China Daily’s dig­i­tal me­dia plat­forms in­clud­ing China Daily web­sites, Ap­ple iOS, An­droid, Ama­zon Kin­dle and Barnes & Noble’s Nook will al­low peo­ple all over Latin Amer­ica to ac­cess upto-date news and views about China and the world on the In­ter­net and their dig­i­tal de­vices.

Li Jinzhang, am­bas­sador of the Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of China to Brazil, said: “China Daily Latin Amer­ica Weekly’s land­ing in Brazil will pro­vide Latin Amer­i­cans with a plat­form to learn about a real and vi­brant China and to en­hance co­op­er­a­tion in a va­ri­ety of fields be­tween China and Latin Amer­i­can coun­tries.”

Valde­mar Carneiro Leao, am­bas­sador of the Fed­er­a­tive Repub­lic of Brazil to China, said: “I am con­vinced the launch of China Daily Latin Amer­ica is a sign of times and a sig­nif­i­cant step in the di­rec­tion of a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of Latin Amer­i­can in this coun­try.”
