News from Asia to the world – Launch of new ANN Website

This year’s annual board meeting of the Asia News Network (ANN) was held in Beijing, China and graciously hosted in The China Daily offices. The Media Programme Asia of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) showed its continuing support for this network comprising over 20 leading regional newspapers.

Over the two days, specific topics involving the development and optimization of the network were discussed. More significantly, a large step towards its transition into the digital landscape was the official launch of the new ANN Website. After the Board Meeting, members met with Chinese Premier, Li Keqiang, at the Great Hall of the People for a group interview session, where he answered questions on China’s political and economic developments that were posed by the board members. The interview has been published on ANN.
