Since its launch in 1981, China Daily has grown to become the nation’s leading English-language newspaper.
With a global print circulation of 900,000 and a combined print, online and mobile readership of 57 million, it serves a vital role in telling the world about China, providing valuable insight into the world’s second-largest economy. Consequently, it is quoted more often by overseas media than any other Chinese publication.
