DHAKA, June 21 (NsNewsWire) — Bangladesh’s first press news agency– NsNewsWire —and Global Times, a major English newspaper in China, have renewed their cooperation agreement.
The news cooperation agreement, signed on June 14, 2018 by Li Hongwei, deputy editor-in-chief of Global Times, and NK Sanchaya, chief editor of NsNewsWire, follows the previous cooperation agreements signed between the two agencies in 2016 and 2017.
Through this agreement, the two agencies agreed to mutually benefit from the content they produce, according to the terms of the agreement that is to remain in force until terminated by either party.
Under the agreement, NsNewsWire and the English-language Global Times will cooperate with each-other on national and international news coverage and content development issues on mutually agreed terms and conditions.
The agreement will help the two sides exploit each other’s advantage and promote mutual understanding and friendship between the people of the two countries.
The agreement is expected to further enhance Global Times-NsNewsWire cooperation in news reporting.
Founded in April 2009, Global Times has already emerged as an essential reading for every China-watcher.
The paper is now one of the most dynamic players among Chinese media, and has rapidly become the major English newspaper in the nation.
Headquartered in Beijing, it provides in-depth coverage of controversial stories, from child AIDS victims to urban renewal, forced demolition and the fight against corruption. Its opinion pages feature heated debate over tough issues such as China’s use of the death penalty, the challenges of forming a new international order, and the nation’s growing wealth gap.
