Nanyang Siang Pau (南洋商報)
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Nanyang Siang Pau (Nanyang Business Daily) was founded by philanthropist-entrepreneur Tan Kah Kee on Sept. 6, 1923 in Singapore. It is currently published in Malaysia. The Singapore edition of the paper has merged with Sin Chew Jit Poh (Singapore) on March 16, 1983 to form the current Lianhe Zaobao, and has ceased to exist.
In August 1932, the Nanyang Daily was separated from Tan’s company. The newspaper company name was changed to Nanyang Press in 1975. In 1993, Nanyang Press took over the management of another Chinese daily, China Press.
