New AsiaN editorial team: Making the magazine a force for vibrancy, excellence



SEOUL: South Korea’s world famous “mukbang” as well as viewspapers, democracy and pluralism were among the wide range of exciting topics to be covered suggested by the new editorial team of AsiaN as it held its first meeting.

Other topics suggested by the committee, formed last month, include governance, social media platforms, Big Brother, niche markets, Asian spirituality, dynamic Asia, digital currency and democracy crisis.

The blend of traditional themes and the latest online trends and the combination of political, religious and social topics reflect the vibrancy of the AsiaN committee and the open mindset of its members regarding all issues affecting, inspiring and shaping people’s lives in 2020 and beyond.

They also mirror the commitment and determination of Asia N to consolidate its identity and strengthen its outreach.

The multi-lingual AsiaN has published and posted online articles, reports, opinions, editorial and features by journalists who have been with the Asian Journalists Association (AJA) from countries in Asia as well as in other regions.

They all support freedom of speech and a better future for journalism and the media under the slogan “One Line of Truth through Sweat and Blood’.

AsiaN has been open to all points of view regarding a wide host of issues, in line with its commitment to supporting freedom of expression and opinion.
