Understand Asia

What We Believe

Viewers today are overloaded by information. Often, what they need is not just news, but understanding. Not just events of the moment, but issues which affect their lives. Not just headlines, but the bottom line. Not just another perspective from a distance, but insights from the inside.

With correspondents based in major cities throughout the region, Channel NewsAsia is created for Asians by Asians.
