A weekly version of the China Daily, the largest English-language newspaper in China, will hit UK newsstands tomorrow, Media Week reported on Thursday.
"While there is an element of breaking news, the majority of the paper seeks to provide a more in-depth review of headlines of the week - a useful guide to help readers understand the emerging opportunities that exist between China and Europe," explained General Manager of the weekly Renzhong Zhi in an article published by the China Daily.
Under the name China Daily European Weekly, the newspaper will have an initial circulation of 35,000 copies and it will be mostly sold in London as well as in Brussels, Belgium. The European version follows the launch of editions in the U.S. and Hong Kong, Media Week reminded.
Although the Chinese publication is owned by the State, the new ventures have independent editorial boards. According to its website, the China Daily has a global circulation of 400,000.
