Sign up for ST Asian Insider newsletter

SINGAPORE - The Straits Times Asian Insider newsletter gives readers insights into a fast-changing region from our network of correspondents.

It is sent out every Thursday, and is part of the newspaper's efforts to ramp up its coverage of developments across Asia and globally.

ST expanded its network of overseas correspondents in 2020 in a bid to widen its readership and extend its reach as an authoritative observer of events that matter to Asia and its people.

The 175-year-old flagship daily has more than 30 correspondents in almost every major Asian capital, as well as in the United States and Europe.

Several correspondents are also based in Singapore to report pan-Asian stories on issues ranging from climate change to free-trade pacts.

This network is complemented by contributors based around the world, who are tapped when a story breaks in the countries or regions they are in.

The Straits Times Asian Insider also has a Facebook page with regular updates on regional news.
