The English edition of the Global Times and its English website were simultaneously launched on April 20. This is the second English-language comprehensive newspaper published nationwide in China.

Operating under the People's Daily, the Global Times was founded in 1993. Its Chinese edition has been devoted to enhancing China's communication with the world over the past 16 years and has acquired a level of success in the market. The Global Times is currently one of the most widely circulated daily newspapers in China.

According to an official with the Global Times, the paper's English edition is not an English translation of its Chinese edition. Rather, it is an English newspaper that has its own independent news gathering and editing team.

This newspaper will feature a style generally consistent with the Chinese edition of the Global Times, and maintain its reporting tradition of being objective, alert and responsive to sensitive issues. It will portray the ever evolving China, report the world from the perspective of the Chinese, and transmit the Chinese general public's stance and viewpoints on major international events.

The English edition of the Global Times will publish five issues every week from Monday to Friday, which is the same publication schedule as its Chinese edition. The website of the Global Times in English is available at http://en.huanqiu.com and http://www.globaltimes.cn.
