Macau Post Daily

The Macau Post Daily (Chinese: 澳門郵報; pinyin: àomén Yóubào), was launched on August 27, 2004, and is Macau's oldest and highest paid-circulation English-language daily newspaper.

It is owned by Macau Everbright Co Ltd, a publication company set up by a group of local journalists, and printed by Welfare Printing Ltd, with offices in a commercial centre on Macau's main street, Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro. The newspaper, which is published on weekdays, is independent of any non-media business interests and emphasizes its "equidistance" towards Macau's six gaming companies.

The paper was launched to provide Macau with an independent English-language daily that caters for all its different communities interested in reading news in the world's "universal language," not just expatriates. In fact, about half of the daily's readership are local Chinese, Portuguese and Macanese residents, while the remainder are expatriates and tourists. The newspaper also is keen to promote multicultural tolerance and understanding, as well as Macau's unique tangible and intangible cultural heritage.

The newspaper is the world's only English-language newspaper to publish a daily general news page about the Portuguese-speaking world. It also publishes a daily news page about the Philippines. Its Page 4 is dedicated to photo-features about Macau's cultural and artistic events.

In its 12th year of publication, The Macau Post Daily has a daily circulation of about 6,000, including around 800 copies distributed in Hong Kong and overseas. Subscriptions account for about two thirds of the newspaper's circulation.

The newspaper, which is headed by veteran Macau correspondent Harald Bruning, routinely offers internships to students from Macau, mainland China, Taiwan and elsewhere. Since its founding in 2004, about 60 interns have worked at the newspaper.
