The New Straits Times
The New Straits Times was established in July 15, 1845, making it the oldest English-language newspaper in the region. Originally known as The Straits Times, its name was derived from the Straits of Malacca, a busy shipping lane in the last century.
With a long history backing it, The New Straits Times has a rich and resourceful archive that presents veritable record of events in this part of the world. Published by the publicly-listed New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd, the paper has always been a source of vital news and views, reported with unequalled fervour. It credits itself for the nation’s well-being and progress in all fields, earning the title “The Newspaper of the Nation”.
With bureaus all over Malaysia, The New Straits Times constantly strives to present its readers with real-time news packed with rich editorial content, minus the trimmings, in line with its “All The News That Matters” motto.
Today, The New Straits Times continues to be an authoritative and influential newspaper addressed at government and corporate sectors, as well as being the choice of a growing audience made up of young professionals and students, the future leaders of a united modern Malaysia.
