The First Chinese Newspaper
Chinese language newspaper in Malaysia, Kwong Wah Yit Poh (KWYP) has been enlightening the masses with the latest news and happenings since it was established by the ‘father of modern China’ Dr Sun Yat Sen 102 years ago.
Taking reporting to another level by covering all facets of the news from culture to politics to music and fashion, it is no wonder that KWYP has risen from its humble beginnings as a means to fund Dr Sun’s revolutionary cause to become a best-selling Chinese-language daily. Though set up in a political atmosphere, this newspaper is an independent newspaper that knew no boundaries when reporting hard-hitting facts and controversies. Known for its unbiased reporting, KWYP has become the daily that exposes sensitive social issues while actively promoting Chinese culture through many of its activities and special advertorials.
With a circulation of over 100,000 copies each day, KWYP can now be found in the hands, homes and offices of the Chinese-reading public throughout Southeast Asia, particularly Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand. Founded in Penang, KWYP still maintained its base of loyal readers in Penang where its largest readership base is still in Penang.
