Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Asia Times was a newspaper launched in Thailand by Thai tycoon Sondhi Limthongkul in 1995. The newspaper hired talent from around the world to produce a regional English-language newspaper.

The newspaper faced financial difficulties in 1997 and closed down the week before the Asian financial crisis erupted with the collapse of the Thai baht on July 2, 1997.

Journalists from Asia Times went on to work for a range of prestigious publications, while some remained together putting out Asia Times Online, which has grown into one of Asia's most popular sites for news on the region.

Online

The domain atimes.com attracted at least 2.4 million visitors annually by 2008 according to a Compete.com study.[1]
