An annual board meeting of the Asia news network (ANN) 2017 is being held in Bangkok, Thailand, gathering executives and editors from The Daily Star in Bangladesh, China Daily, The Jakarta Post in Indonesia, Vientiane Times in Laos, Sin Chew Daily in Malaysia, Dawn Newspaper in Pakistan, The Straits Times in Singapore, The Island in Sri Lanka, The Nation Multimedia Group in Thailand and GoGo news agency in Mongolia.
ASEAN needs to be more integrated and stronger to cope with the changing global landscape, as “multilateralism” was in decline, former Asean chief Surin Pitsuwan said, calling on the regional grouping to enhance the role of the Asean Regional Forum (ARF) to solve the crisis in the Korean Peninsula.
ANN was founded in 1999 with seven members and now it comprises 21 leading media, mostly leading national English-language daily, from South, Southeast and Northeast Asia including The Daily Star, China Daily, The Jakarta Post, Japan News and The Nation. ANN’s main activities are daily exchanges of news, photos and a host of other collaborations.
The networking of newspapers in Asia was first discussed informally by Asian editors who participated in the first Asian-German Editors' Forum organised by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Manila. Encouraged by the forum’s success and the warm fellowship among them, the editors decided to pursue a more permanent professional and business relationship. With the goal of improving coverage of Asian affairs by Asian media, ANN was born.
